New - Ticketing system for 2024

Choose your level of support!

These concerts can only take place thanks to the generosity of supporters, sponsors and the church. Of course we want to make the concerts accessible to everyone but we also need your financial support to keep professional musicians doing what they do best!

Therefore we are trying a new ticket system - you can choose your ticket based on your affordability and the level of support you are able to offer. All tickets will give you the same experience, and all will support the music-making, and we are super grateful whatever you are able to contribute.
