The 16th edition of the Festival het Havikconcert will take place on June 16, 17, 18, 2017. A three-day music festival, organised in the open air on the oldest canal in the historical centre of Amersfoort, NL.
The festival is known for its characteristic scene and musical choices. Next to the more standard classical works, the festival focusses on cross-over and contemporary music. The works that are programmed are both challenging and open at the same time for a broad audience. Professional musicians from all over the world perform interactive concerts in the characteristic, almost intimate setting.
The festivals subtitle is ‘Keihart Klassiek’, referring to the ‘Keistad’ Amersfoort, which means as much as ‘stone-city’. ‘Keihart’ also refers to the centre (‘hart’) of Amersfoort. And that’s exactly where we’d like to place (classical) music: in the heart of the society, open for a broad audience! Music that is active and alive!
Please come at the first weekend in summer to Amersfoort and join us at Keihart Klassiek! You could also join us by boat with 'De Waterlijn'. Entrance free.
