Music is also part of Amsterdam. A city rich in artistic culture also has musical quality to export. Although the first attractions are in visiting the Moco Museum, there are other places where lovers of good music will feel at ease. If you want to enjoy something different from the museum Amsterdam, we recommend you to visit the Concertgebouw Free Lunchtime Concert. Disconnecting from work at lunchtime is important. Enjoy a classical music concert on occasional Wednesdays at 1230. Performances take place between September and June in either its small hall (kleine zaal) or large hall (grote zaal). The best part? It’s free and located on the Museumplein, very close to the Moco Museum. Definitely the perfect excuse to go out for lunch.
More lunchtime options
Amsterdam is a city where it is almost impossible to get bored. There is always something to do. Lunchtime is no exception in this artistic and extravagant city. Another option to enjoy at noon is the National Opera & Ballet Free Lunchtime Concert. The concert takes place in the building foyer and lasts 30 minutes. Performances are held almost every Tuesday during the arts season (from September to June). Concerts are given by members of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chorus of Dutch National Opera, or the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra. Another good lunchtime option is the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ Concert. Enjoy classical and contemporary music near the river IJ. It takes place in the grote zaal (main theatre) on Thursdays.
Be part of the musical art of Amsterdam
If you like music and jazz, we have the perfect option for you. On your next visit enjoy the Bimhuis Jazz Free Workshops and Sessions. Prepare your ears or tune your saxophone to receive the melodies of the best jazz in town. The performances are held on different days. On the first Monday of each month, also called Monday Match, you will enjoy the fusion of a musician and a dancer who come together to improvise. On Tuesdays you can enjoy the “Workshop and Session” where you can participate with your saxophone. If you are not a musician, but you are curious, you can also enjoy this activity. Finally, don’t forget to visit The Violinist Statue. It’s a ground-breaking statue of a violinist that literally comes out of the ground. You can find it in the foyer of the Stopera.
