Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir is looking for friends

‘On a friend you can always count’.

The Foundation of Friends of Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir is continuously looking for new ways to support Holland’s best Baroque Orchestra and Choir to enable lasting to do with which they have become great: perform the most beautiful baroque music at top level.

The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir has put the international standard for the historically informed performance practice, both on the concert stage as on CD. Many national and international awards underline the success of Ton Koopman’s years of pioneering work.

The time at which in particular Ton Koopman is focused, city councils, church communities, universities and electors ensure composers and performing musicians could exercise their profession. Johann Sebastian Bach could therefore become the Patriarch of the Baroque music. In our time of further individualisation and privatization do we like to appeal to you as a person, as a lover of the music of Bach and his contemporaries. Together with you we can ensure that this wonderful music will resound also in the future.

Support Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir, become a friend, close friend or soul mate. That will support us doing what you expect of us: running the most beautiful baroque works at the highest level.
