Logistic Information and Contact
Musis is the main venue for both congres days in April 2019. It is one of the oldest ‘House of Music’ in the Netherlands. The most ancient parts date from 1847 and breathe history. Musis has been renovated recently, and the new, beautiful ‘Parkzaal’ with its green façade was completed in 2018. The Parkzaal is adjacent to the beautiful Musis Park, one of the main central parks of Arnhem. The architects introduced a transparent design that merges with this green environment.
The building has won many architecture prizes and is the proud home of the ‘Gelders Orkest’, one of The Netherlands’ main orchestras. With a renewed and stimulating program Musis is for everyone: from classical music to jazz and from dance parties to (international) conferences – as you can experience in April!
