Online via livestream
Music has always been a crucial element of public celebrations, such as military parades, coronations, royal weddings. It added grandeur to the solemnity of the occasion. Musical ensembles entrusted with performing music at these events have existed in Europe since early times. Following the Muziekparade exhibition (on view at the Rijksmuseum until juni 2022) this presentation will focus on the role of music and instruments in Dutch public events between the late 16th century and the early 19th century.
