Residentie Orkest The Hague

The Residentie Orkest is the orchestra of, for and from The Hague. It has firm links with the city and its inhabitants. It also plays a strong role in supporting The Hague’s wider profile as seat of government, home to the royal family and city of peace and justice as well as a centre of diplomacy, a first-rate place to live, a business hub and a city with a socially committed heart. The orchestra actively uses classical music to connect and stimulate all residents and visitors based on four pillars: symphonic, education, talent development and outreach. It aims to make a valuable contribution towards an inclusive, inspiring, collaborative and multi-faceted city. The orchestra offers a top-quality musical experience with an adventurous profile and dynamic zeal. It challenges, surprises and provides enjoyment and always looks to approach its music in a fresh, contemporary and youthful way.

Nicholas Collon is currently chief conductor and artistic advisor of the Residentie Orkest. From summer 2021, Anja Bihlmaier will become the new chief conductor. Richard Egarr will remain principal guest conductor and Jun Märkl has been appointed as principal guest conductor.



The Concertzaal is located on the second floor and is Amare’s largest hall. In this hall, visitors can view the stage not just from the front, but can also sit around and even behind it on the twin-level balconies that run around the whole hall.

Acoustic panels have been installed all around the hall, and along with the green seats and oak flooring, the relief pattern on these panels defines the hall’s visual character. In its “classic” setup, the hall can seat 1500 seated guests. This is the hall where the Residentie Orkest can truly shine.
