Every week - with exception of the months of July and August - a Lunchtime Concert takes place in The Royal Concertgebouw.
For Lunchtime Concerts in the Recital Hall you will require a ticket, which can be bought online (max 2 tickets per person). These tickets are free of charge, but you do pay a E 2,50 transaction fee. Doors to the concert hall open about 20 minutes before the Lunchtime Concert begins. For Lunchtime Concerts in the Main Hall, a ticket is not required.
For many years now, Lunchtime Concerts have been held in the Main Hall and the Recital Hall. Usually, these Lunchtime Concerts take place on Wednesdays, but please check the concert schedule as occasionally this changes. The concerts range from public rehearsals by the Concertgebouworkest, to chamber music performances by young up-and-coming artists. There are no Lunchtime Concerts in the months of July and August.
We offer a broad range of music, with something for everyone: the majority of concerts include classical music, but you can sometimes hear more modern repertoire. The concert programme is announced one week in advance on our website. The concerts are 30 minutes long and are free of charge.
