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.
Cellist Lidy Blijdorp and violinist Julia Philippens join forces in this first concert of our Greenhouses series 2022.
Lidy Blijdorp is a young, passionate cellist with enormous storytelling power. She graduated from the Paris Conservatory with the highest distinction. Lidy has won several prizes for her beautiful cello playing at various important competitions, including the Cello Biennale Amsterdam and the Grachtenfestival Conservatorium Concours.
Julia Philippens has developed into a genre-transcending musician. After her classical studies, improvising to jazz or contemporary classical music became second nature. Julia graduated Summa Cum Laude for her master’s degree in jazz violin: ‘a unique, pioneering violinist with a radiant stage personality’.
