About the Orgelpark

Welcome to the Orgelpark, the international concert hall in Amsterdam for organists, composers and other artists. In the ten years since the Orgelpark's opening, it has grown to be a unique stage in the world – we dare to say in all modesty.

 

The Orgelpark is housed in the beautifully restored monumental Parkkerk in the Gerard Brandtstraat, near the Amsterdam Vondelpark, and aims to integrate the organ into mainstream musical culture through a new presentation. Moving away from the traditional function of the organ serving the building (the church), in the Orgelpark the building serves the organ and its music.

 

The organ is the focal point of the very diverse program of Orgelpark activities. Every season about 80 activities take place, such as concerts for diverse groups of enthusiasts. Think, for example, of classical music, jazz, and improvisation. The Orgelpark also hosts concerts in combination with other forms of performing arts, like dance and film, and organizes master classes and symposia. Once in a while the Orgelpark turns into a workshop for young talent from conservatories in the Netherlands and abroad. The Orgelpark also commissions new compositions. In short, the Orgelpark is buzzing!

 

In addition to the varied program we offer a wonderful Art Deco ambiance, an intimate concert hall featuring impressive organs, beautiful and clear acoustics, and a cosy foyer. And of course we will give you a warm and personal welcome. Visiting the Orgelpark is going out at its best.
