About the Orchestra

The Orchestra rehearses every Tuesday evening in Amsterdam and performs three surprising concert programs per year, with concerts in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Hilversum , among others . We then play in venues such as De Duif, Zuiderkerk, Geertekerk, MCO and the Concertgebouw.

The Orchestra has played many major symphonic works by Mahler, Strauss, Beethoven, Brahms, Berlioz, Debussy, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Prokofiev. Modern compositions by John Adams, Gavin Bryars, Einojuhani Rautavaara and Calliope Tsoupaki have also been on our desks.

The Orchestra played for 22 years under the direction of the Russian conductor Alexander Vakoulsky. In the following years we played under conductors such as Jussi Jaatinen, Gustavo Gimeno and Joan Berkhemer.

Jacob Slagter has been our permanent conductor since 2014. We are very happy that Jacob gives our orchestra a wonderful evening every Tuesday evening with his drive, inspiration and jokes and thus passes on his invaluable experience to us.

In recent years, foreign tours have been made to China, the Czech Republic, Italy, France and Poland. The tours are always a combination of music, culture and a lot of fun.
