Greenhouse concert – James Oesi (double bass)

7 August

Dit evenement is afgelopen.

Our Greenhouse concerts are back! This summer, the Hortus is once again hosting a series of classical concerts in the Palm greenhouse. You can enjoy a relaxing music session underneath ancient palms and cycads. Bring your own mat or your favorite pillow and settle yourself in a nice spot in the greenhouse.
A lay down and listen concert is a unique and personal experience where all your senses are stimulated. Listen to the sound of the music, feel the warmth of the sun and the cool breeze in the greenhouse, smell the greenery around you and dream away.


James Oesi is a double bass player from London and a well-known face in the classical art world since his arrival in the Netherlands in 2009. As one of the few, he focuses on the bass as a solo instrument. James played his solo programs (consisting of works by Bach, Rachmaninoff and Beethoven, among others) on many well-known stages and is a welcome guest in programs such as Podium Witteman, Op1 and Vrije Sounds.
