A promising springtime

The Stift Musical Encounters will take place on May 4 – 9th, 2021. International students will come to the Netherlands and follow chamber music masterclasses. They will be coached with their ensemble. Internationally renowned “Masters” will teach and perform concerts with the students and with each other.


Stiftfestival in August

Each year, at the end of August, the Dutch Twente region is the stage for chamber music. A selection of renowned international musicians is playing here, side by side with the terrific “Stift Young Artists”. Over 30 concerts in nine days, from intimate chamber music by candlelight in the medieval Stiftskerk to the Festival Orchestra, film screenings, family concerts, “Stift Unbound” and open air operas at stunning Twickel Castle.

On the last Saturday of 2019, a great number of music lovers enjoyed the last music event of the year in “our” Stiftskerk in Weerselo. There were three concerts to attend, each with its own colourful and festive athmosphere.
