Princess Beatrix as a guest at the concert of the European Union Youth Orchestra
Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands was present at the concert of the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) in the Grote Zaal on Sunday evening, 16 August. Afterwards, Princess Beatrix, who has attended various concerts of the EUYO in recent years, posed with the young members of the orchestra on the stage of the Grote Zaal.
Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the EUYO could not act in the usual composition. Instead, thirty Dutch musicians living or studying in the Netherlands and alumni of EUYO brought an adapted program. Without a conductor they performed Syrinx by Debussy and Metamorphosen by Richard Strauss, among others.
