Muse of Zuid celebrates the musical heritage of the Low Countries from the renaissance to the present, resounding in the neighbourhood, from 14 to 18 September 2022. Festival Muze van Zuid celebrates composers for whom streets in Amsterdam South are named and composers who deserve a street name. The concerts are both indoors and outdoors: various locations in Amsterdam Zuid, Orgelpark, around the Vondelpark, in the Vondelkerk, Concertgebouwbuurt and a number of private residences. In this fifth edition, over 50 works by Dutch composers can be heard in 30 concerts in five neighbourhoods in Amsterdam Zuid by top musicians such as Dudok Quartet, Ellister van der Molen, Renate Arends, Lidy Blijdorp and Gwendolyn Masin.
