Tickets & Info

And suddenly it’s Christmas again – a music festival par excellence, and of course the Noord Nederlands Orkest is going for an atmospheric Christmas concert as usual. Now that coming together and singing is suddenly no longer so self-evident, it can turn out to be extra impressive this time. Led by Risto Joost, with soprano Louise Kemény, mezzo-soprano Barbara Kozelj and presenter Nynke Heeg, the NNO guarantees a festive evening.

Catchy Christmas music In addition to a number of typical English ‘Christmas carols’ and traditional German Christmas songs, music by Georg Friedrich Händel, the slightly more frivolous contemporary of Bach, is played. His Messiah became one of the most loved choral works of all time, and no wonder. Handel wrote church music with as much flair as he wrote operas. His infectious music also appealed to the ‘ordinary people’, and not only the nobility.
