Gong ceremony to mark the start of the Robeco SummerNights concert series
The collaboration between Robeco (ticker symbol ROBP) and The Royal Concertgebouw on Robeco SummerNights – the longest-running and most successful partnership in the cultural sector – is about to start again.
As this 28th year also marks the start of a further three-year extension, Edwin Rietkerk, Head of Global Marketing and Retail at Robeco and Simon Reinink, Director of The Concertgebouw, sound the gong at Euronext Amsterdam, to open trading. They will be preceded by jazz singer Fay Claassen singing ‘I’ve Got the World on a String’, as a preview to her forthcoming concert on 12 August.
During Robeco SummerNights, which this year will be held between 1 July and 31 August, audiences can enjoy over 80 concerts in The Concertgebouw in the classical, pop, jazz and world music genres. The music will vary from Kyteman’s jam session during the opening concert to master pianist, Denis Kozhukhin, playing Mozart’s Fifteenth Piano Concerto. The season will also include special theme nights, such as on 12 August when the Main Hall will be transformed into a Jazz Club in honour of the First Lady of Jazz, Rita Reys, and the Tribute to the Beach Boys by various Dutch artists such as Yorick van Norden and The Kik.
