The NedPhO Koepel in Amsterdam is the ‘home base’ of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra|Netherlands Chamber Orchestra. The former church, close to Muiderpoort station in the east of the city, is the perfect location. It has wonderful acoustics for rehearsals and creativity. We are happy to share our home with everyone who loves music. We stage regular concerts here, including special children’s concerts on Wednesday afternoons. Some of our rehearsals are open to the public, and of course there are many educational activities.

About the NedPhO Koepel
The Gerardus Majella Church was built in 1925 to a design by architect Jan Stuyt. By 1992, it had fallen into disuse and there were even plans for its demolition. Fortunately, the building was acquired by NV Stadsherstel Amsterdam, a public-private partnership committed to preserving Amsterdam’s architectural heritage. Following major renovations, the new owners invited NedPhO|NKO to take up residence. The former church proved the perfect location, with space for offices, practice studios, and a magnificent concert hall which seats two hundred people. Today, we host regular ‘Koepel Concerts’ and various educational projects to involve the public in our musical life. We welcome people to get ‘up close and personal’ with the orchestra and its music. With the kind support of sponsors including the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and VSBfonds, the orchestra and Stadsherstel Amsterdam have been able to fulfil a long-cherished ambition.
