Genesis, a new beginning


The Nicolaïkerk (St. Nicholas church) is a medieval church in the southern part of the old city of Utrecht in the Netherlands. This building is the home of two very interesting instruments, the organ built by Marcussen and the carillon built by the famous Hemony brothers (17th century). These instruments are the backbone for a series of concerts, which are organised each year by the Stichting Culturele Evenementen Nicolaïkerk (Foundation for Cultural Events in the Nicolaïkerk ).

Duration of the concerts is approx. 45 minutes.

After the successful festivals in 2011 the NicolaiConcerts finally switched from a monthly concert series to two festivals a year. .

Tickets are sold at the entrance of the church, doors open half an hour before concert start time. No reservation is needed.

For programs of the past years you can browse our program archive.

The Nicolaikerk is located at the Nicolaaskerkhof in the inner city of Utrecht (See city map Utrecht).
