EVERY MONDAY & FRIDAY IN SEPTEMBERNothing is more classic than classical music. This month our Modern Classics focus on the stories that involve the music genre in every facet. Through the composer, the musician, the soundtrack and the student, we learn to appreciate and love the musical pieces that are too often set away as old-fashioned. To inspire you even more, every Monday evening screening will be accompanied by live music, played by talented students from the Conservatory of Amsterdam.
