In the morning everyone will be free. Amsterdam is full of attractions and sights of which most are to be found within its city centre. This will give you the opportunity to explore the city. You could visit one of Amsterdam’s many museums or take a cruise on Amsterdam’s canals. In the afternoon the official opening of the Police Choir Festival will take place at the Royal Concert Hall in Amsterdam. All participating choirs will be present and there will be the rehearsel for the concert on Saturday evening. In the evening all choristers are off duty. Perhaps some choirs will stay in their hotels to have their dinner, while others go out in Amsterdam city centre. There are many possibilities.

In the morning everybody is free to do what they please. There is a possibility for choirs to collaborate in a church service which will be organised on request. At the end of the morning all choirs will go to Scheveningen. This is a beautiful city at the sea. There is a boulevard with many terrasses and restaurants. We will perform all together in this city. Halfway through the afternoon a great party will take place for all the choirs. The exact location is still a surprise. You will not be disappointed: delicious food, a glass of wine and/or a Dutch beer. Music will be provided and the choirs will also sing themselves! After the party, the Police Choir Festival will officially come to an end (not including). In the evening some choirs will take off to their country.
