The English Reformed Church, located in the Begijnhof in the heart of Amsterdam, has been hosting chamber music concerts since the early 1970s. With its outstanding acoustics, the beautiful 15th-century building quickly became and has remained a favourite venue for musicians and audience alike. Several renowned musicians received their start here, and many still delight the ERC audience.
