NautaDutilh is Social Partner of Children’s Music Week (Kindermuziekweek) 2014. Children’s Music Week is an annual event that is a joint venture between the De Doelen concert venue and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. The festival has been officially opened this afternoon.
Children’s Music Week is a 10-day musical paradise for children up to 12 years old. It provides children with an introduction to live classical music in a way that is active, educational and, most of all, fun. The sixth edition of the event will take place from 28 March to 6 April 2014. More information:www.kindermuziekweek.nl.
“NautaDutilh has always had close links with De Doelen,” says Gabriël Oostvogel, General Director of De Doelen. “In our building there is a hall named after the founder of NautaDutilh, Adriaen Schadee. Besides that, various employees of NautaDutilh have sat on our Supervisory Board and on the board of our support foundation, the De Doelen Support Fund. So we’re delighted that the firm is now committing itself to one of our priority areas, namely musical education for children. We desperately need the support of the business world, particularly in view of the current economic crisis and government cutbacks in the arts and culture. It’s great that NautaDutilh has chosen to partner of De Doelen.”
NautaDutilh feels close ties with a Rotterdam icon such as De Doelen. The Rotterdam office is only a stone’s throw away from the concert venue. “We want to exercise our social responsibility,” says Erik Geerling, partner and board member at NautaDutilh. “With particular emphasis on the theme of Children and their rights. We thoroughly support the initiative of De Doelen to bring young children into contact with live classical music. Music is a powerful tool that contributes to the social and emotional development of children. So we are particularly proud of our partnership in De Doelen’s Children’s Music Week.”
