Due to the latest measures implemented by our government around the corona virus outbreak, we have had to cancel all concerts and close our café Meneer Frits until April 6th. 

We are currently trying to re-schedule all cancelled concerts to a later date. Due to the enormity of this process, it may take a little longer than you might expect from us before we can give you any clarity. 

Ticket buyers will be informed personally about the new dates. Should re-scheduling prove to be impossible, we will then of course inform you about the handling of tickets already paid for. With many thanks for your patience and understanding. 

Spring is in the air, the fresh breeze beckons... but there is plenty of nature to enjoy in the concert hall too. Freshly mowed grass, a thunderstorm in the distance, the call of a cuckoo. You can hear it all in Beethoven’s romantic Pastoral Symphony.

A Romantic spring walk
The Arcadian yarns of shepherds and shepherdesses and unexpected thunderstorms can be experienced, almost literally, in Beethoven’s genius music. Before the intermission, the lauded German violinist Carolin Widmann (Bayerischen Staatpreis für Musik 2017 and the International Classical Music Award) will perform the Violin Concerto by Benjamin Britten: “It was love at first sight”, top violinist Janine Jansen said upon playing this intense piece of music for the first time. “The finale begins like a prayer but ends like a scream. It’s very moving”.

To keep the waiting time at the bar to a minimum, a 'walletless break' applies to this concert. You pay for your break drink in advance when ordering your entrance ticket. So you can enjoy your company and your drink for longer!
