Greenhouse concert – Robin Scherpen (classical guitar)

21 August

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.


Classical guitarist Robin Scherpen takes you into a musical dream world without visual noise. As a visually impaired classical musician, Robin is forced to rely on nothing more than his intuition. Robin wants to share a piece of his experience when losing sight, and with that control, leaving you in a contemplative state of being. You will experience the way the power of imagination extends further when you close your eyes and you can completely surrender to the music.
