Tilburg op vleugels autumn 2018

This remarkable festival features both internationally renowned pianists and regional young talents. The grand piano plays a leading role during three weekends that will have Tilburg in high spirits as the city offers classical music to a wide audience of connoiseurs as well as incidental visitors. The occasion for this event is the 65th birthday of Jo Sporck, composer and honorary citizen of Tilburg.
