Scheveningen Choir Weekend  (Terug naar de Kust - Korenweekend Scheveningen) brings choirs from The Hague and the rest of the Netherlands to the famous beach of Scheveningen. Choirs large and small, of many different genres, will converge in song on the outdoor stages in the third edition of this exciting festival. 

A varied and exciting programme

On the first day, the choirs will perform on stage, and on the second day, sea shanties will be the main feature. There will be six stages centred around Scheveningen's two most famous landmarks, the Kurhaus and the pier, as well as on the Keizerstraat, with an exciting programme of choral music of all sorts.

The timetable is as follows:

  • Saturday September 22 from 11.30am to 6.15pm
  • Sunday September 23 from 1pm to 5pm

The types of choir and the genres of the music varies hugely: think pop, gospel, classical, musicals, jazz, close harmony, tearjerkers and children’s theatre. Each performing group will give two 20-minute performances.
