Viola students of Francien Schatborn take the stage

Today the students of Splendor musician and violist Francien Schatborn take the stage, as they prepare themselves for their yearly (or final) exams at the Amsterdam Conservatory. During the two years of the pandemic, the youngest generation had few opportunities to play for a "real" audience. That's a real shame, because this interaction is a crucial element in their growth. Splendor's safety, friendliness and intimacy is the perfect place for them to step back on stage. An evening filled with masterpieces from the viola repertoire, played by the (pre-) youngest generation.

Member concert
Splendor can only be the independent and free hub that it is, thanks to the members who support us. We pay them back with our specialty: music. Every year, all Splendor musicians play one concert that's free for this crucial group to whom Splendor owes its everyday existence. Combined with many other events, this means that our members have free entrance to about 80 concerts a year for €9,99 p/m (and €4,99 p/m for minima and students!) – and receive a discount for all other concerts. Pretty good deal, right?

The members enable Splendor to remain independent from government subsidies, which is the only way to secure real freedom in programming, experimentation, risk-taking and the promotion of young, upcoming artists. If you can think of another place without a central programming, where last-minute concerts can be planned any moment, where there is no backstage and artists and audience are constantly mingling and hanging out at the bar, where mysterious creative outbursts can be presented that are often labeled 'too risky' elsewhere, and that still guarantees high quality by unleashing the best of The Netherlands' music scene in this creative playground – you get a free membership!
