Music comes to life even more when you get to know its background.
Therefore, the Friends of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra organize pre-concert talks* before many of the concerts. With the help of sound fragments, short interviews and appropriate anecdotes, experts give explanations about the structure or background of the music to be performed.
Admittance is free for Friends of the Rotterdam Philharmonisch Orchestra. Other visitors can purchase tickets prior to the concert for €4 at the Friend's shop in de Doelen. Pre-concert talks start an hour before the concert starts.
* Pre-concert talks are in Dutch unless otherwise stated.
