What is a life without music? Music makes our lives more pleasurable, music is a comfort and makes us happy. Music stimulates self-development and health. Music, art and culture are very important pillars for the quality of life, solidarity and economy.
CityProms wants to make classical music easily available to a broad audience. The north of the Netherlands has a rich culture of making music and we want to offer them the ideal podium.
The three-day festival
The CityProms festival is the most enjoyable music festival in the North where everyone is welcome. To make the hurdle as low as possible, we have made all our performances free, because classical music is for everyone: people of all ages, amateurs and professionals, for people with and without disabilities and with little or a lot of money. We invite everyone to come and enjoy our festival and to join in with our projects and workshops.
Welfare, care & education
Fryslân has around 260 orchestras, over 500 choirs and a lot of individual musicians. We are very lucky! CityProms connects classical music with welfare, care and education by teaching people to use their musical talents in their daily life, work, in the care sector and in education. We deliver projects regarding care and education under the flag of EMBRACE Nederland.
