FOKKER ORGAN CONCERTS in 2024 | Small Hall | Muziekgebouw A'dam

Since 2009, the Huygens-Fokker Foundation has been organizing concerts with the Fokker organ (1950) in the Small Hall of the Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam. The six to eight concert programs a year around this 31-tone organ are all very different and vary from early music to experimental music. In 2024, in addition to the regular organists Ere Lievonen and Laurens de Man, various musicians will participate in the concert series, such as Una Cintiņa, Bram Stadhouders, Raymond Honing, Michel Marang, Manuel Visser, Stefan Gerritsen, Anne Veinberg, Glenn Liebaut, Gregory Oakes and Ned McGowan.
