Proms: Christmas Classics
Snowflakes are swirling, the sleigh is ready: get in and ride along to a fairytale Christmas.
A hearth, garlands with lights, the smell of cloves, and most of all music to give you that warm feeling: Christmas is a feast for all the senses. And that feast already starts right before Christmas with Christmas Classics, the Christmas prom by the Rotterdam Philharmonic. Enjoy a hot chocolate with (or without) whipped cream or a glass of glühwein at your arrival. In the Grand Hall you'll find various stands with bites an beautiful presents to buy as a for under the Christmas tree (or for yourself). Haven't sent your Christmas cards yet? Take a nice picture of yourself in the beautiful ambiance of De Doelen and send it to all your friends. Then enjoy the concert in the Grand Hall – and don't forget to stay right after, because our brass section has a festive encore in the chest. Everything needed for a beautiful start of Christmas will be there!
