[2021-06-23] Special Concert at NedPhO-Koepel

Last week on Wednesday 23 June, we were honored to attend an exclusive NedPhO concert with a group of Dujat members. We extend our gratitude to the orchestra for their kind hospitality and beautiful performance, it was a breath of fresh air after a long period of online activities. We also thank Mr. Matsubara, Managing Director of Yakult Europe, main sponsor of the orchestra and board member of Dujat, for his touching speech. We look forward to welcoming you at our next offline event!

This event is for invitees only. If your company is member of Dujat, please contact our office and we will send you the invitation. 

A negative test is not required to join this event,
but please be aware that this concert will take place according to the measures of the government regarding COVID-19. You will be required to wear a face mask until you take seat, and it will all take place at a safe distance. More detailed rules can be found below, on our event site, and later in our confirmation e-mail.

We are pleased to invite you to attend an exclusive concert for Dujat members at NedPhO-Koepel, taking place on Wednesday the 23rd of June. There are limited seats available so please make sure to register as soon as possible.

The music performance will start with a word of welcome at 16:00. Doors will already open from 15:30, and before you get your drink and take a seat, there is some time for networking and catching up with other members at a safe distance.

NedPhO|NKO, short for Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, is based in Amsterdam and performs at Dutch National Opera and in Concertgebouw Amsterdam. NedPhO|NKO joined the network of Dujat in 2018, and is happy to finally open their doors for other members.

The NedPhO-Koepel is the ‘home base’ of the orchestra, with the impressive Yakult-Hall located in the heart of this former church, close to Muiderpoort station in the east of the city.

After last year’s cancellation due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we unfortunately still cannot offer the promised tour around their beautiful building and a networking reception inside, but we are sure this special concert will be a breath of fresh air after a long time of lockdowns and online events, and will give the opportunity to enjoy beautiful music in the company of other members.

Besides a short word of welcome from Dujat, an introduction to the performance by NedPhO and remarks by Rob Streevelaar, Managing Director, we are also happy to welcome Hiroyasu Matsubara, Managing Director of Yakult Europe, Board Member of Dujat, and the orchestra’s main sponsor since 1993, to give a short speech.
