From 2006 onwards Festival Classique has worked to demonstrate that classical music is enriching for everyone. Festival Classique offers a unique programme for as many people as possible to enjoy classical music in their own way and to their own taste.
With Festival Classique we try to think 'off the beaten track' and away from the standard patterns of expectation of classical music, without compromising on the quality of music. This is why our concert programmes and locations are often extraordinary and with attention to detail. We offer not just a concert, but a total-experience. We enjoy providing our visitors with remarkable shows that combine various art forms, such as dance, theatre, film and classical music.
In 2015 the Festival drew more than 37,000 visitors. Our programming manages to attract all ages, both young and old. Each year we also have a large array of shows and workshops that are free of charge. As a festival we also provide a service to the local residents of The Hague. We invite children from local primary and secondary schools to come and enjoy the shows; and in our participation performances we connect and work closely with musicians and talented youngsters from The Hague. This connection is inspiring!
