Oorkaan is the only organization in The Netherlands that has dedicated itself exclusively to the creation of high quality staged concerts for young audiences. Our aim is to give every child the opportunity to experience the power of live music. The staged concerts for 1,5 to 12-year-olds focus on all kinds of live classical music from all over the world, performed by outstanding musicians. For the creation of the productions, Oorkaan has developed the Oorkaan Method which receives international acknowledgement on a regular basis. Several productions have won or have been nominated for international prizes for best music production for young audiences.
Oorkaan presents around 75 performances a year in international concert halls, theaters and festivals, and has built up a structural partnership with renowned concert halls such as Philharmonie Luxembourg, Kölner Philharmonie, Elbphilharmonie and deSingel Antwerp. Most of the staged concerts are without words, making them suitable for international tours.
