Muziekwerf (music yard)

Hidden behind Hofplein is a small, striking church building dating from 1951. In 2022, the transformation of the last Baptist church in Rotterdam into a dynamic place for youth orchestras and choirs will start.

In Muziekwerf youth ensembles can create, rehearse and present under one roof. The pleasure of 'making music together' is central to everything that happens. Muziekwerf will be an inspiring meeting place for Rotterdam youths from 6 to 26 years of age, from beginners to professionals, and their audiences. Muziekwerf wants to let more children make music together for a longer period of time by facilitating a diverse offer of music companies.
