Most of the classes and concerts take place in the Orpheus theatre. Some concerts will be in other nice cultural places in Apeldoorn and surroundings. We try to make sure there is an exclusive atmosphere that enables people to enjoy chamber music. All masterclasses and concerts are open to public.


“I am particularly proud of Apeldoorn being regarded this highly by young musicians in the Netherlands and abroad. (…) The Masterclass offers talented young musicians an opportunity to take a next step in their international career.” Detlev Cziesso, alderman of culture, municipality of Apeldoorn 

Each year an important tradition is created by many Apeldoorn families: they open their doors to provide hospitality to the participants. So students get a change to really enjoy Dutch family life here.
