AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS  •  De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam  •  16 July - 9 September 2016
 
 

De Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam presents an attraction, in which the visitor steps back in time into the history of the Netherlands and the House of Orange. With video walls, projections, audio guides and almost daily heavenly music from the largest historic organ in the Netherlands, six hundred years of Dutch history are palpable. It is a journey along medieval secrets, royal ceremonies, Iconoclasm, spirited citizens and the Dutch sea heroes that  lie buried there.

On 28 June 1633, Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit married in De Nieuwe Kerk and shortly afterwards their first son Hendrik was baptised here too. The young couple had themselves immortalised by Rembrandt in the famous pendant portraits that can now be seen  in the Rijksmuseum. A Marten and Oopjen tour through seventeenth-century Amsterdam leads to various places including De Nieuwe Kerk. 

Daily music

Just like in the seventeenth century, there is music every day in De Nieuwe Kerk. The organ plays at 12 noon daily (except Tuesdays). The music programme on Tuesdays comprises exceptional performances by Fuse (known from the Dutch TV programme Podium Witteman), Spinvis with Ensemble Zerafin, Diamanda Dramm & James Oesi and PA’Dam. The programme can be viewed at nieuwekerk.nl.
