Lunch Concerts in the Royal Concertgebouw
Every week, except for the summer months of July and August, free lunch concerts take place at 12:30 in the Grote or Kleine Zaal of the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. The concerts range from public rehearsals of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and performances by conservatory ensembles to chamber music featuring young emerging talent. The programming is diverse, catering to various tastes: classical and romantic music are prominent, but you can also explore contemporary repertoire.
