Concertzender 40 years

The Concertzender is 40 years old, this calls for a celebration!

Today, we are excited to present the second special jubilee broadcast! We’ve asked three programme makers to curate a two-hour episode featuring a live performance by violinist and singer Yanna Pelser, insightful chats about programme making and, of course, a great selection of music.

Presentation: Pauline Verburg

opname van tweede jubileumuitzending in de studio van de Concertzender

This episode of Concertzender 40 years is all about making programmes at Concertzender. How do you actually go about creating a programme? Who exactly are you making your programme for, and what makes you want to work specifically for the Concertzender? Pauline discusses this with our programme makers Karin van den Boogaert, Niklaas Hoekstra and Gerard Meulenberg.
