Lunchtime Concerts

For many years now, free Lunchtime Concerts have been held in the Main Hall and the Recital Hall. Usually, these Lunchtime Concerts take place on Wednesdays, but please check the concert schedule as this occasionally changes. The concerts range from public rehearsals by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, to chamber music performances by young up-and-coming artists.

The Music

We offer a broad range of music: the majority of concerts include classical music, but you can sometimes hear more modern repertoire. The concert programme is announced one week in advance on our website. The concerts last thirty minutes and are free of charge. These concerts are very popular, so plan to arrive about a half hour before the concert to get a seat. Doors to the concert hall open about 30 minutes before the Lunchtime Concert starts. Visitors are advised that these concerts are suitable for children from six years old.
