About BIJ ANDREAS


The beautifully restored Andreas Church in Naarden is called BIJ ANDREAS since 2018 and serves as a stage for a great many activities of the Robert F.W. Bruinsma Foundation.

For example, we organise master classes and concerts where young talented musicians are given the opportunity to further develop their talents and present themselves to a wide audience. All this under the supervision of professional musicians.
