Corona information and solutions

Choir and orchestra, SeulWe are aware of the limitations that the corona crisis imposes on our activities. However, just sitting and waiting is not the solution and that is why we are looking for responsible and safe options. Music and art practice are essential parts of human existence and Accademia Amsterdam has the task to contribute to this. We do this in the form of concerts, choir accompaniments and courses.

We follow experts who investigate the consequences of making music safely and other creative activities during the corona pandemic. Our decisions and measures are based on this, in the meantime respecting the advice and decrees of the authorities. An example of our response to the crisis is the on-line coaching offered by our experienced tutors. Take a look at our website.

We could imagine that you have questions and uncertainty about the possibilities and measures. Feel free to contact us, we are happy to discuss this.

Below, we give a number of articles that may be interesting and helpful to form a vision of how we can shape our activities in the near future. The state of science changes daily during the corona period. If you come across interesting and current studies, please, send us an email so that we can place the link.
