No concerts until April 20th

On Tuesday, March 23rd, the government extended the current lockdown with three weeks. Concert halls must remain closed to the public up to and including Tuesday, April 20th.


Concerts January - June 2021

To prevent the spread of the corona virus, we expect that keeping a distance of 1.5 meters will remain the norm for the time being. This has consequences for our concerts in the spring. Unfortunately, these cannot take place as planned. We have therefore decided to cancel our concerts in The Concertgebouw from 1 January to 30 June 2021. As soon as relaxation of the measures are announced, we will decide in what form concerts can take place in the spring. Ticket buyers have been informed by email.

Face masks
From Tuesday 29 September 2020 until further notice it is mandatory to wear a face mask when you visit the Concertgebouw, Paradiso, Philharmonie Haarlem, TAQA Theater de Vest and the NedPhO-Koepel. We request that you wear a face mask when entering and exiting the building, or when moving through the building. As soon as you are in your seat, the face mask can be removed. It is important that you bring your own face mask, these are not available in the concert halls.
