On Saturday 17 September, De Doelen will transform into an intimate speakeasy bar during our Late Summer Spirit in which you will be taken on a whirlwind journey of discovery. The Finnish conductor Tarmo Peltokoski (22) takes you along with the orchestra into his musical world. From breathtaking fireworks in Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue to a wild love affair in Strauss' Don Juan: be surprised by the versatility of these musical pieces.

When the concert is over, the exploration doesn't stop. While the DJ provides atmospheric background music, you can enjoy a delicious cocktail and celebrate a good start to the late summer!

Prices include a drink before the concert and a cocktail after the concert.

From Gershwin's fireworks to the Northern Lights of Sibelius
A dazzling program
Sibelius probably already sounded from a transistor when Peltokoski was born: he conducts by heart and knows the music down to his toes.
