OPENING NIGHT


OpeningNight is a celebration of music, where we show that GAIA makes chamber music a very special experience.

You can experience chamber music in sequences of 30 minutes.
The sequences are repeated three times at each concert venue, always with a half-hour pause in between.
In the pauses you can take refreshments and comfortably stroll from one concert venue to the next.
All three venues are located within seven minutes' walking distance of one another.
You can hear various formations, genres and styles and spontaneously enjoy an evening of chamber music. You determine the course of your evening.
