Theme: General

Can you have a digital chamber music festival? The new reality in which we find ourselves challenges us to find new means. What can you do when you have to cancel the event you’d planned, or more truly – what’s possible now?

As the muscial pioneer of the ” new normal “, Classical Encounters has decided on an experiment. A festival which definitely looks for meetings can’t avoid the encounter online. Music always creates connections and offers comfort, essential elements right now for both listeners and performers. So Classical Encounters, both proud and exploratory, the very first digital edition of: Classical Encounters Online.

On Sunday 17th May artistic leader Eva Stegeman is inviting everyone with a computer screen and internet for a digital festival day, live from the Lourdeskerk in Den Haag. During a livestream which begins at 12:00 and will finish around 18:00 , you can listen non-stop to concerts, short concert introductions, a minilecture, interviews and surprising musical intermezzo’s. The theme Variations, which was to be the theme of the original edition from 13th to 17th May, remains the theme in this online edition.
