The Residentie Orkest in your will

What is your legacy?

How do you want to be remembered? An important aspect of your legacy is the memory you leave behind: What did you stand for in your life? What do you want to pass on? Including the Residentie Orkest in your bequest makes your memory tangible.

Art lover and patron E.K.G. Rose provided the financial support to establish the Residentie Orkest. After he passed away, his wife decided to honour his memory by continuing this important contribution. That is how this early cultural heritage was passed on and continues to flourish for more than a century later.

The next generation

You can also fulfil such a role so that the orchestra of The Hague continues to exist and we can continue to play music at the highest level in the future. That way you will help us to pass on classical music to the next generation. In addition, you will be contributing to the continuation and expansion of educational projects such as The Residents, our apprentice orchestra for underprivileged children.

A valuable cause

Maybe your legacy will lead these children to tap into hidden talents. A future top musician may be discovered thanks to you! Either way, you will be helping us to expose the next generation to a beautiful form of art that provides comfort and pleasure. Including the Residentie Orkest in your will shows what you stand for: the connecting power of music, the development of new talents and the preservation of cultural heritage.

The Residentie Orkest is a cultural Public Benefit Organisation (Dutch: ANBI). This means that the orchestra fully benefits from your bequest without any tax deductions.
