Ticket sales 

The uncertainties of our time challenge us to look for maximum flexibility. We announce the new program on a monthly basis. Keep an eye on our concert program or subscribe to our newsletter to stay tuned. The program will be announced at the latest at the following dates:

October: at the latest on Tuesday 1 September
November: at the latest on Thursday 1 October
December: at the latest on Sunday 1 November

The program for spring 2021 remains unchanged (for the time being). Ticket sales for these concerts have been temporarily suspended. We are currently investigating how these concerts can take place with the current COVID-19 measures taking into account. Tickets already purchased remain valid.

Ticket scheme: Save your ticket - enjoy later

With ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’, the cultural industry hopes that ticket holders will attend their favourite venue or event at a later date. The basic principle of the scheme is that the ticket value is retained. If a concert for which you have purchased tickets is cancelled, you will be given the choice to convert the value of tickets into a voucher, donation or refund. This way you can order tickets without any risk. More information about the ticket scheme can be found here.

Customer service

The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra asks for your understanding for the impact of the measures on our organization. 

We comply with the advise to work from home. Due to the size of all measures, our customer service is only available by phone from Monday-Friday between 10 a.m. - 12 noon and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. As our office is also closed until further notice, you can not visit us at this moment. We also ask for your understanding for this situation.
