On Monday, 12 July, the UvA Orchestra J.Pzn Sweelinck will be presenting the same classical concert twice, including works by Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky. Join the raffle to win tickets for this programme in the Concertgebouw.

The student orchestra, led by Konradin Herzog, will perform the special programme Ontastbaar ('Untouchable') twice, from 19:00 - 20:15 and 21:15 - 22:30.


Tchaikovsky - Serenade for Strings
Stravinsky - Symphonies of Wind Instruments
Tchaikovsky - Parts of Swan Lake



Because a maximum of 410 visitors are allowed in the auditorium, as opposed to the usual 2,000, UvA can only raffle a limited number of tickets among staff and students (60 tickets for 19.00 and 60 tickets for 21.15).

If you are interested in attending this concert please sign up for the ticket raffle using your UvA email address.You have until Sunday 27 June to sign up. The sign-up form allows you to indicate whether you wish to be considered for a ticket for 19.00, 21.15 or either time. 

The draw will be made on 28 or 29 June, and you can expect to be notified about the outcome of the draw by email in the week of 29 June.

Sometimes people cancel their sign-up after the draw has taken place, Hence we will be keeping a (short) waiting list. Even if your name is not initially picked, there is still a small chance that tickets will become available.

If your name is not picked but you are nevertheless keen to attend the concert, you can still purchase a ticket via

Corona measures in the Concertgebouw

Government/RIVM and Concertgebouw rules with regard to entry, exit and hygiene that are in force on 12 July will apply. For an explanation of the (current) rules and a video on the modified layout of the auditorium, see the Concertgebouw’s website

At present, this means that a maximum of 410 visitors can attend the concert in the Main Hall. Rows of chairs have been removed to create distance between visitors. The cloakroom is closed, so coats may be taken into the auditorium. There is no break in the programme, so on entering the Concertgebouw you can get a drink from one of the counters in one of the foyers and take that drink with you into the auditorium, where we have placed small tables as well.

A block of three chairs is always kept free between visitors. Visitors from the same household may sit next to each other.
