Right after you board the bus, the experience begins. On the way to Oranjewoud, all the ins and outs of the festival and the program are explained to you by young usher Tea Stamhuis. Upon arrival, your festival visit begins at Museum Belvédère. There you can see the exhibition Als de Dood with inside and outside some special contributions from the festival, such as a 72-hour wind harp composition in the nearby meadow and several (interactive) music installations. To conclude, attend a presentation concert by some world stars from the renowned Atlas Ensemble.

Bach and Piazzolla

A short walk through the park landscape then brings you to the Salon Stage where the Isabelle van Keulen Ensemble treats you to music by a timeless Bach and hot-blooded Piazzolla. Then there is a moment to choose: do you stroll over to the atmospheric Festivalhart de Proeftuin in the historic Overtuin to enjoy a variety of delicious food and beverages at your leisure and gather energy for the evening program? Or will you be surprised by the spectacular location composition The Call of the Semantron by Greek composer Aspasia Nasopoulou, with the audience on either side of the Grand Canal?

From Ravel to South African jazz

Afterwards, a quick dinner at the Festivalhart de Proeftuin. Fortunately, seats are reserved at the world-renowned Quatuor Ebène. They play Bach arrangements by the Swiss Richard Dubugnon and the famous string quartet by Ravel, among others. Back in the Overtuin it is time for the final stage: the big band AM.OK of Tijn Wybenga who collaborates for the occasion with South African guitarist, composer and thinker Vuma Levin and his quintet. Finally, the ready bus will bring you back to Groningen quickly and safely.
