music in oude kerk
The Oude Kerk is not only the oldest building in Amsterdam, it is also the oldest music temple in the city. It is a place in which musical traditions have been created, passed on and renewed for over 700 years. In the Silence music series, musicians explore the acoustics of the Oude Kerk with both contemporary music and older repertoire. In the Saturday evening series Monuments, leading organists from the Netherlands and abroad play music by composers in whose oeuvre the organ occupies a central position. Playing the Cathedral is an annual residency programme in which nationally and internationally renowned musicians are invited to create new work especially for the church space. In the Oude Kerk, you get to hear well-known masterpieces in new ways and pioneering works by living legends.

* Tickets can be ordered with a Sonic Acts Pass or Weekend Pass using the promotion code SAB2022.
