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 concert at a spectacular venue. Ok! Maybe the last one can be a newfound tradition.
But what better way to celebrate this December than listening to some of your favourite Christmas songs as you and your loved ones are surrounded by a sea of candles? Meanwhile, a talented string quartet plays, note by note, the iconic tunes that will wash over you at Het Scheepvaartmuseum and Posthoornkerk.
On December 1, the iconic Het Scheepvaartmuseum will light up with the joy of Christmas. Hundreds, or even thousands, of sparkling candles will illuminate this stunning venue. Candlelight invites you and your own to gather together and listen to some of your favourite Christmas songs from films such as Love Actually, Home Alone, The Holiday, and more.
On this intimate evening, Lucerna Quartet promises mesmerising renditions of “The Maestro”, “The Christmas Song”, “O Holy Night”, among others. But truly, few things are quite as enchanting as listening to “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” amidst the soft glow of candlelight. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind evening out in Amsterdam.
Joana Rolo and Panos Gklist are taking to the stage at the striking Posthoornkerk to bring some Christmas classics to life on piano. Popular Christmas songs, beloved carols, soundtracks, and more are included on the setlist for this one-of-a-kind concert. This December, relive some of your favourite on-screen moments from the likes of Home Alone and Anastasia, and immerse yourself in unique takes on “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”, and many more heartwarming songs.
Shelter from the cold inside some of Amsterdam’s most atmospheric venues. Gather your loved ones and celebrate the beginning of this holiday season in a new light. Candlelight’s Christmas-themed concerts are bringing all of the festive cheer and nostalgic energy to the city this December.
