A legendary event returns, by popular demand, after three years of absence on Saturday, 23rd March 2024.
A classic top concert, an exquisite dinner, a guest list featuring leaders from the worlds of politics, business, and culture, and an iconic location in the heart of Rotterdam: the Philharmonic Gala is an event like no other. After three years of absence, it returns in full glory on Saturday, 23rd March 2024, by popular demand. A unique evening at the highest level, without an auction or lottery. Registration is now open.
The central theme of the 2024 Gala is the iconic music and captivating story of Romeo and Juliet: the triumph of love and boundless imagination. You will experience Prokofiev's masterpiece in a sensational performance by our orchestra in a large ensemble, under the baton of Conductor Valentin Uryupin. The theme will be visible in every detail of the evening, from the red carpet reception and sparkling welcome drinks to the grand dinner, after-party, until the closing of the jazz lounge. You will recognize the love for music - and its unifying, transformative, and inspiring power - as the driving force that brings everyone together on this evening.
Your attendance is a direct show of support for the Rotterdam Philharmonic: you help the orchestra continue enriching people's lives with music, transcending all geographical, cultural, and generational boundaries. But beyond being a fundraiser, the Gala is also a meeting of minds, where existing relationships deepen, new connections are made, and promising ideas take flight - in short, an evening you wouldn't want to miss.
We warmly invite you to be part of this unique event on Saturday, 23rd March 2024. You can reserve your table(s) through the reservation form below.
This program was originally going to be conducted by our chief conductor Lahav Shani. Because Lahav is expecting his first child at the beginning of April, he will temporarily stop working from mid-March. In this program he is replaced by Valentin Uryupin.
