Dear friends and music lovers, we need your help! Our Foundation relies on subsidies, sponsorships and donations to organize our concerts. The musicians are going through a difficult time at this moment. Unfortunately it’s the bitter truth. Please support us with your donation. Even a €10 donation can make a big difference. On behalf of the Board, I thank you very much, Micha Cohen, Chairman.


On Sunday, 5 December 2021 the Jewish Music Concerts Foundation presents the 7th Annual Chanukah Concert in the Main Hall of Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw in cooperation with the Jewish Amsterdam Chamber Ensemble, Barry Mehler, Israel Nachman and Yoni Rose.

This year we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of a 1921 December concert which featured Holland’s chief Cantor and composer Victor Schlesinger (1885-1939). This unique concert will highlight some cantorial gems which have become the cornerstone of Dutch Jewish cultural heritage.

We invite you to join us for another spectacular program full of fun, surprises, and top quality music.

Ticket sales has commenced according to these guidelines, which are periodically updated.
