Sunday 17 September 2023

15.00 | Free entrance


At the Netherlands American Cemetery and Memorial in Margraten, there has been a musical tribute every year since 2006; a classical concert that befits the unique location. This in commemoration of the fallen soldiers who gave their lives in the Second World War for the liberation of the Netherlands, and to celebrate the liberation of the Netherlands in September 1944, which started in the south of Limburg.

The 17th Liberation Concert will take place on Sunday September 17. This year the Royal Military band ‘Johan Willem Friso’ will play a modern/ classical concert. They will be supported by soloist Nico Wouterse and singer Emma Kok.

Each year the Liberation concert honors the fallen soldiers who fought for our freedom.

Men and women who left the safety of their homes to fight for our freedom. Relatives and loved ones were left behind in uncertainty and in many cases never to see their sons, daughters, husbands and wives alive again. We are working hard on the 2023 edition of the concert. More info follows soon.
