Weesp Chamber Music Festival

We just returned from lovely Holland where we held our first Weesp Chamber Music Festival (go to our festival page to see photos!)! It was a non-forgettable weekend full of joy, wonderful music, a sold-out church and sun! The audience especially enjoyed our late night concert by candlelight which we performed sitting in a round with the audience around us. Also the Cuypers Ensemble from Hilversum was a great success (and the cakes, cookies and scones made by their parents were a delight!).

Thanks a million to our fantastic guest musicians Guy, Alasdair, Clare, Bram, Dom and the Cuypers Ensemble and violin maker Theo for making this weekend so special!

A huge thanks also to Stadsherstel Amsterdam and sponsors P.W. Janssen’s Friesche Stichtingen and Gemeente Weesp without whom we couldn’t have made our dream to have our own festival come true. And last but definitely not least, we would like to thank from the bottom of our heart Simone’s wonderful mum Ria van der Giessen, who with all her endless enthusiasm, love and organisation (and cooking!) skills made this festival such a success!!
