Concert ter herdenking van de bevrijding van Nederland en Rotterdam door Canadese strijdmachten in 1945. 

This programme pays homage to a crucial moment in the history of the city of Rotterdam. In 1945, Rotterdam was liberated by Canadian military forces. In the 'Canadian Summer' following this event, many Dutch women crossed the Atlantic to Winnipeg, capital of the province of Manitoba, alongside their newfound Canadian lovers.  

In this concert, we remember that act of liberation. We do so through beautiful works by Berlioz and Schubert, as well as a commissioned work by the Canadian-Finnish composer Matthew Whittall. Both Canadian and Dutch soloist will be performing, amongst them Rotterdam baritone Henk Neven.
