Music Festival “Sleutels tot Schuyt”

From Thursday 9th of June until Sunday  12th of June, Leiden honors the composer Cornelis Schuyt with a new music festival; “Sleutels tot Schuyt”.

The city of Leiden honors composer Cornelis Schuyt with a new grand music festival “Sleutels tot Schuyt”. Cornelis Schuyt died 400 years ago in Leiden. His song “Oh Leyda gratiosa” underlined his lifelong relationship with the city, where he was a notable figure in the social and cultural life. With vocals, organ, flute, dance, and children’s theater, the music of Cornelis Schuyt and his contemporaries are brought back to life.

There is also a lot to experience from the water, on the 9th and 10th of june a parade of musicians, dancers and acrobats will march through the city center of Leiden to open the festival and it is possible to see the parade for a large part from the water. Furthermore on june 11th “Schuytjevaren” will take place, the music boat “Notendop” will bring an ode to water-city Leiden by performing  wayward edits of the music of Schuyt. These mini-concerts will take place in several canals in Leiden.

So if you were looking to plan a trip to Leiden, come sail with us next week!
