Open Days & Taster Classes

Feel the atmosphere

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so the saying goes. And it is true. That is why we invite you to come to Maastricht and get a sense of the atmosphere, meet our students and teaching staff, explore the city and attend a few performances or concerts in the evening. It is the perfect opportunity to see for yourself that you are in very capable hands at Conservatorium Maastricht, and that our ambitious team of lecturers train musicians in a pleasant, amicable atmosphere in a wonderful city. We regularly organise open days and even taster classes for prospective students. If you are a secondary education student, you can register for these (by e-mail only). If you want to attend performances, keep an eye on our calendar. Do not forget to download our flyer and/or the Conservatorium Maastricht Brochure.
