About this concert

Changes in connection with coronavirus measures

Owing to the coronavirus measures announced by the Dutch government on 12 November, the Children’s Music Day will continue as scheduled, but as an event with assigned seating. For those attending the morning programme, this means that following the mini-concert The Little Sounding Box, you can listen to lullabies from the Shhh… sleep well series, which the orchestra produced in collaboration with Zwitsal. Unfortunately, the musical exploration of the premises has had to be cancelled.

From 10.00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m., toddlers between the ages of two and four are welcome at The Little Sounding Box, a fun, interactive mini-concert in the Amsterdam Hall. Together with a musician from the Concertgebouworkest and actor Lotte van Dijck, the children will be embarking on a musical journey of discovery. There’s a mysterious box in which secret sounds are hidden. What will come out? It’s all about the very youngest listeners feeling, sensing and experiencing music.

In between, orchestral musicians will be performing lullabies from all over the world in the Reception Room, as heard in the Shhh… sleep well series, a production by the orchestra in collaboration with Zwitsal. And of course, tea and coffee will be available for the adults.

The Little Sounding Box mini-concerts start at 10.00, 10.45 and 11.30 (doors open twenty minutes beforehand). A ticket gives you access to the mini-concert, with the option afterwards of going on a musical exploration of the premises
