• Commissioned compositions: Muziekgebouw contributes to the development of music by awarding several commissions to composers each season (thanks in part to support from Ammodo). 
• Educational projects: in our very own SoundLAB, children and teenagers are introduced to contemporary music. And our talent development programme gives a stage to promising young musicians.

Leaving a legacy
It is possible to include Muziekgebouw in your will. You will in that case receive the same privileges as Friends who contribute €1,000 or more. To discuss leaving a legacy, please contact Marieke Ammerlaan (relationship management).

On you will find a calculation tool to quickly see your tax advantage.
