In 2013, The Royal Concertgebouw will be 125 years old. This special birthday will be celebrated with various events, including a Star Jubilee and a series of Jubilee Concerts in both the Main Hall and the Recital Hall. The Concertgebouw is delighted that international stars such as Angela Gheorghiu, Valery Gergiev, Bernard Haitink, Mariss Jansons, Leonidas Kavakos, Menahem Pressler, Christianne Stotijn and Eva-Maria Westbroek have agreed to be part of the Jubilee Programme.
West Side Story
Each month of the Jubilee year will focus on a different period, in chronological order, from the rich history of The Concertgebouw: in music, text and images. These themes from the past are still relevant and current in our lives today. At the end of the Jubilee year, the Concertgebouw will look towards the future with a large-scale education project based on West Side Story.
