Canal Festival 2017
The Canal Festival is the stage for young musicians from all over the world. During this largest classical music festival in the Netherlands, they engage young and old with unique concerts. Ten days dazzling classic throughout Amsterdam. With more than 250 concerts in 90 venues, the Canal Festival offers something for every taste and preference. A large part of the concerts will be held outdoors. These concerts are free of charge. Other concerts will be held on remarkable venues – albeit a secret for now. But don’t be surprised to discover a concert programmed in a metro tunnel or under a bridge in Amsterdam City. And for the ‘Home, Garden and Rooftop Terrace Concerts' we scout for fabulous drawing rooms in private mansions at the Amsterdam Canals. The majority of the concerts are classical music, but we also tend to jazz lovers.
The stars of the Canal Festival are the musicians. Most of them are young, still studying at the conservatory or recently graduated and well underway to establish a career as a musician. One asset they all have in common: They are incredibly gifted. Their challenge is to make a wonderful show in accordance with the theme of the Canal Festival and the venue of their performance.
