Two enchanting classical open air concerts on the water.
Principal conductor Lahav Shani
Concert on the water
Have a seat along the water or sail your own boat towards the stage, and enjoy a free concert by the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.
The transparent stage in the Veerhaven (harbor) sits on a pontoon boat, floating among the antique sailing yachts and sloops. Combined with the music, lighting, and the monumental buildings in the background, the scene looks like something out of a fairy tale.
This 15th edition features future principal conductor Lahav Shani. Additionally, a top pianist will be joining the performance, as for the first time in the history of this concert a grand piano will be lifted onto the stage.
Because of its 15th edition, for the first time there will be two concerts. On August 27th the Veerhaven Young Talent Concert takes place with performances by Rotterdams Jeugd Symfonie Orkest, young solists from Classic Young Masters and 3 dancers.
