nuts garden and nuts huis
In recent years, the Nutshuis garden has proved to be the ultimate setting for a relaxing afternoon listening to impassioned concerts. A great location in the middle of the city, but without all the noise,... in short: ideal for a Saturday afternoon concert ;)
On Saturday 6 July the sounds of four cellos will fill the Nuts garden. Cellists Willem Stam, Sietse-Jan Weijenberg, Alfian Adytia, and Mátyás Virág will show you how versatile they and their instruments are. From a rendition of Quaternion, the composition where Russian Sofia Goebaidoelina combines the worlds of day and night, to a groovy composition of Oene van Geel. Any cello lover can look forward to a very special closing piece: the renditions that the Finnish metal band Apocalyptica (made up out of four cellists as well) created of unadulterated Metallica songs.
Program 6 July
Sofia Goebaidoelina - Quaternion
Oene van Geel - New works for four cellos

Het Nutshuis is an independent podium for art, culture and society. It is based in a former bank building, which served as the head office of the Nutsspaarbank te ’s-Gravenhage from 1921 to 1992. Het Nutshuis is continuing the ideology of Het Nut, a 19th-century citizens’ initiative that supported the ’development and elevation of the common man’.
New European Ensemble is supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten (from 2017) and the city of The Hague
