The summer Domtoren concerts (zomeravondconcerten) start up again tomorrow evening. Every Monday at 20:00, guest carilloneurs and other musicians, as well as Utrecht’s resident carilloneur, Malgosia Fiebig, will perform a variety of musical pieces.
The music can be heard throughout the old city center without much trouble, but for a particularly good listening spot, you can head to the cathedral’s Pandhof. Each week has a different musical theme, with tomorrow’s inaugural concert featuring operatic pieces by Verdi and Mozart.
You may remember that last year they performed Tubular Bells for the closing concert of the series. This year’s finale will be no less spectacular, as the musicians perform an adaptation of Pink Floyd’s The Wall.

1 july 20.00 Malgosia Fiebig (city carilloneur) and the opera klass of Studio 32
