Calm in the City

Undergo a meditative journey through sound at the 600-year-old Der Aa-kerk!

Der Aa-kerk will once again set scene for a new Calm in the City. The internationally acclaimed violin maestros The Violin Sisters will take you on a meditative journey through sound at one of the most astonishing venues in Groningen. Slowdown in the midst of the city and become aware of your senses.

The spiritual music from Lalita & Nandini comes from a long Hindu tradition and is considered to be a gift to the divine and a means to alleviate the soul. The rich tones of the music will lead the way as they travel through the immense space of the church.

Explore their meditative music laying down on matrasses on the wooden floor or have a seat around the artists.


20.00 – 20.10 : introduction
20.15 – 21.00: concert with the Violin Sisters

NOTE: If you’d prefer to meditate, you can bring a yoga mat for laying down or a cushion to sit comfortably. Please remember to bring warm clothes. Doors will close at 8 PM, so please be on time. Spots are limited so be sure to buy a ticket.
