The Edesche Concert Hall is housed in the Noorderkerk in Ede, The Netherlands. In 2010 the building was sold by the church congregation and was given a multifunctional character. In 2013 Eskes Media moves into the building. First there is the idea to turn the atrium into a reading room, but the organ beckons to organize concerts. The acoustics are sublime and a kind of gift from the architect. With some minor adjustments to the hall, the famous Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano will take up residence on the stage in the summer of 2013. With this, the Edesche Concertzaal is a fact.
On October 13, 2013, Ukrainian pianist Anna Tyshayeva plays the first concert in the Edesche Concert Hall. With Bach's Goldberg Variations, the opening is a fact. In her wake are many famous pianists at the Bösendorfer Imperial, including Nikolai Lugansky, Emanuel Ax, Severin von Eckardstein and Hannes Minnaar.
Pianist Anna Fedorova opens the first edition of the International Chamber Music Festival Ede on May 25, 2017. During the Ascension weekend, Ede will be the hub of Dutch music life for four days with the best chamber music from the most beautiful locations. The opening concert is even broadcast live by Radio 4.
