Here we go! After a long delay we're kicking off the 5th season on 24 & 25 April.
For the first time at SEEKLANG there will be an 'Ensemble in Residence': The ONYX Trio was formed during the last SEEKLANG Summer Festival. Jesper Gasseling, Elodie Thery (Cello) & Marija Bokor (piano) are excited to open the season and to put together thrilling concert programmes.
