ABOUT
NEXT E V E N T S​

Welcome to the website of concert organist, pianist and church musician Matthias Havinga.

Matthias enjoys a busy international concert career. He recorded many CD's,  made countless other recordings and runs a successful Youtube-channel.  Havinga is organist-titulaire of the Ronde Lutherse or Koepelkerk and liturgical organist of the Oude Kerk, Amsterdam.

He is also Professor of Organ at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

Reviews on Matthias' organ playing:

"...playful, sophisticated timing and dangerously quick pedal playing. Havinga masters his profession."

"...pure, true musicianship and an inner feeling for the ‘right’ musical interpretation are expressed in an inimitable way by Matthias Havinga."

On November 13 Matthias plays an organ concert in Sollentuna Church, Stockholm, and on December 11 the concert year 2022 is rounded off with a Koepelkerkconcert at the Ronde Lutherse or Koepelkerk Amsterdam. Together with soprano Klaartje van Veldhoven and Radio 4-anchor Sander Zwiep he will play 'Miroir de Peine', the program featuring mainly Dutch 20th century composers Hendrik Andriessen and Henk Badings.

The new year starts with again 'Miroir de Peine' at the Nieuwe Kerk, Groningen. Then a series of St. Matthew-Passions is planned all across the Netherlands with the Nederlandse Bachvereniging.

In april, Matthias will play two solo concerts with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, conducted by Jan Willem de Vriend.
