Music lovers who come to The Netherlands delight in the performances of the well known orchestras, not a few of true world class. Less known are the many smaller ensembles and organizations all over the country that specialize in a particular aspect of music. One such is the International Chamber Music Festival in Wassenaar. Started four years ago its aim is to provide really great chamber music for people in Wassenaar and surroundings. They started a music festival that is getting more and more attention as well as critical acclaim. The festival this year, in the “Dorpskerk” (village church), in the beach pavilion “Sport” and in “De Paauw”, the stately old town hall, will take place on May 23, 24 and 25. Not only is the quality of the music of the highest standard, the small town atmosphere makes the performances uncommonly “gezellig”.
