OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.
