Welcome to the Scratch Muziekdagen Leiden, the biggest Scratch event in Europe!

Participating in the Scratch Muziekdagen Leiden means being part of a huge choir (800 singers), singing with an orchestra (75 musicians) being accompanied by a professional conductor and soloists and of course feeling the ambiance of the beautiful Pieterskerk in Leiden. But most important is having a great time, enjoying, laughing and singing with your friends, family, singing group or just your friendly neighbour of the day.

How does a Scratch day work?
On the day of the Scratch, the doors will open at 08.45am. The rehearsal starts at 09.30am and ends at 17.15pm. During this time, well rehearse every song and piece of music planned for rehearsal. Then you will get a well deserved break, and be ready for the concert in the evening where we expect a large audience.

Concert tickets bring your fans
So, youve rehearsed all day and it sounds wonderful Wouldnt it be nice to have your friends sitting in the audience to give you a big round of applause? Then bring your friends or family to enjoy the concert in the evening. The concerts start at 19.30 hrs. Dont worry, during the day theres plenty of things for your friends and family to see and do in Leiden. This beautiful old city has a number of museums, historic buildings, nice bars, restaurants and other attractions to visit. Or just walk around the market on Saturday. We are sure they will have a good time too. And of course you can meet up with your friends and family at the lunch and dinner breaks.

Have a nice dinner at selected restaurants
Every year we select several restaurants nearby the Pieterskerk, so you can have a nice meal and be back to the church on time. Around November well start publishing the names of the restaurants so you can make your own reservations.

Scratch Muziekdagen Leiden: het grootste jaarlijkse scratchevenement van Europa
Scratch komt van de Engelse uitdrukking ‘to start from scratch’ ofwel ‘met niets beginnen’. En dat is precies wat dit evenement is: samen met zo’n 1000 andere muziekliefhebbers uit alle delen van het land op één dag een muziekstuk instuderen én ’s avonds uitvoeren voor publiek.

Onder leiding van een professionele koordirigent en solisten, bieden De Scratch Muziekdagen een podium aan zangers en muzikanten uit Nederland én Europa. Iedereen mag meedoen, of je nou heel goed bent of niet. Meedoen met de Scratch Muziekdagen, betekent ook een dag vol plezier, gezelligheid en ontmoetingen. We hebben elk jaar een uitgebreid programma, dus je kunt zelf kiezen uit verschillende muziekthema’s en data. Meerdere dagen meedoen kan natuurlijk ook, dus graag tot Scratch!
