On Friday, October 14, the 1st day of the Jazz Harp Academy Intensive Course will be held at the HKU University of the Arts, Mariaplaats 28, 3511 LL Utrecht.
TivoliVredenburg is a big cultural center containing multiple concert halls in different shapes and sizes, right in the center of Utrecht, which is right in the center of The Netherlands. The HKU building is at 7 minute walking distance.
TRAIN / AIR TRAVEL
The venue is a 10 minute walk away from the train station (Utrecht Centraal), so unless you come by car, this is your preferred destination.
A multitude of national and international trains stop at Utrecht Central station, and it is a 31 minute train ride from Schiphol Airport.
Here's a link to the Dutch railway planner, where you can also purchase tickets: http://www.ns.nl/en.
Reserve your parking space ahead of time and you will only pay €10 (regular prices double and more).
P4 is a good choice, it is relatively easy to drive up to, and a short walk to the venue, doable with your harp on a cart or carrying a small harp.
