There’s nothing that feels more like the beginning of Christmas than the arrival of Sinterklaas, a warm cup of Bischopswijn, the sweet smell of Kruidnoten, and a Candlelight Christmas piano concert at the Felix Meritis.
(Ok! maybe the last one can be a newfound tradition) But what better way to celebrate Sinterklaas eve than listening to some of your favorite Christmas songs as you and your loved ones are surrounded by a sea of candles. Meanwhile, a talented pianist plays, note by note, the iconic tunes that will wash over you in a soothing wave of melody. Grab tickets here!
On December 03, across two evening sessions at 19:30h and 21:30h, the iconic Felix Meritis will light up with the joy of Christmas. Hundreds, or even thousands, of sparkling candles will illuminate this Neo-Classical building established in 1776 as a place for a new society to meet. There’s no better way to honor its purpose than getting together to listen to some of your favorite Christmas carols.
On this intimate evening, Candlelight’s pianist promises the very best of Tchaikovsky, along with beloved seasonal music. Deck The Halls to a specially curated repertoire of Christmas classics like Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Winter Wonderland, and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, among others. But truly, few things are quite as enchanting as listening to Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy amidst the soft glow of candlelight.
Shelter from the cold inside one of Amsterdam’s most atmospheric venues. Gather your loved ones and celebrate the beginning of this holiday season in a new light. Candlelight Christmas: Classics on Piano is an experience you definitely don’t want to miss!
