While blooming tulips, windmills and winding canals are inextricable from the mental image of the Netherlands, the country’s historic art scene and ongoing love of music have dotted the iconic Dutch landscape with museums and music festivals.
Classical Movements starting traveling to the Netherlands in 1997 with major symphony orchestras and expanded its concert tours with other ensembles such as adult and youth choirs. Tours have included the Children’s Chorus of Sussex County, Minnesota Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Yale Alumni Chorus. Dutch choral groups the Kobra Ensemble and Wishful Singing have been presented at the Serenade! Choral Festival.
