We love to listen to music makers and sound artists. We usually visit them at concert halls and venues, but unfortunately, due to the measure taken in regard to the corona virus, it is not possible for them to perform in front of a full house at the moment. However, that doesn’t make them any less creative. Listen to what they are doing now or enjoy their recent work in these online spaces.

On this page of The Concertgebouw you can lose yourself in an abundant amount of classical music. The platform offers the possibility to watch many concerts that have taken place recently.

Bimhuis is also making sure you won’t miss your daily dose of sound art. Bimhuis Radio is playing music of both established names as upcoming talent. Plus, you can find live registrations of previous concerts.

Head over to Splendor’s YouTube channel where every day, at 15:00 on the dot, a new registration will be uploaded of Splendor’s musicians at their club house, titled “Splendor bij je thuis” (Splendor at your home).

Every day at 20:00, TivoliVredenburg will go live on their Facebook page. Together we can enjoy special snippets of “Vrije Geluiden” (Free Sounds).
