EMBRACE Nederland concert
26th October 2018
back in Leeuwarden after 60 years
In September 2018 it will be 60 years since one of the best orchestras in the world played a concert in concert hall De Harmonie in Leeuwarden. That’s why it is a great honour and a special occasion that the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra will play again in De Harmonie in the cultural year of 2018.
On Friday the 26th October 2018, the RCO will play the beautiful music from Don Juan and the symphonic poem Tod und Verklärung by Richard Strauss accompanied by chef-conductor Dima Slobodeniouk.
At the request of the organisation of Leeuwarden Cultural Capital 2018, CityProms EMBRACE will organise the concert. This foundation creates innovative programmes that positively influence the well-being of people with disabilities. Knowledge and experience with classical music will be used by musicians, who have been specially trained. Music gives vulnerable people a better life.
