Kasteel Maurick - Enchanting Location
Kasteel Maurick, close to Den Bosch, is a location as you would expect from a castle. A drawbridge, tower rooms and a moat. In the courtyard is 'the Orangery', a spacious place where we will do something special.
The oldest part of the current castle dates from 1400 and concerns the entrance area between two slender towers. The gate provided with a pointed arch can be reached via a drawbridge. The central part of the building has two out-of-the-way hanging towers. Behind it is the main tower that has been crowned with a slate covered with slate. The right wing is only partly 17th century, the rest was added at the end of the 19th century.
Next to the castle lies estate "Maurick" with a size of 23 ha. It is owned by the BV to the exploitation of the Maurick Estate and is located on the transition area from slightly higher grounds to the Dommel Valley. The area has a colony of blue herons that is one of the largest in the Netherlands. The area is definitely worth a walk.

Live: Opus Cuatro
At this special location we offer special live music. With limited and sometimes even without instruments, the men of Opus Cuatro put a special atmosphere with their voices. When the four voices sound together, there seems to be a complete orchestra. The voices of this unique group are known on stages throughout America, Europe and Japan. Since its founding in 1968, the group has increasingly focused on tangos and other South American repertoire. Opus Cuatro has given more than 7800 concerts in theaters and on radio and TV in more than 450 cities around the world. The size of the audience varied from a few dozen at private concerts to 300,000 during the transition to the new millennium in Buenos Aires. They can be heard almost every year at Cosquín's large music festival.
The 4 voices sounds like a complete orchestra. A special quality. They released 22 CDs. In 2002 they received the Premio Carlos Gardel for their CD Tangos, valses y milongas. The prize, comparable to the Dutch Edison, was awarded in the 'tango CD of group or orchestra' category, and in 2011 they received the Premio Gardel for their Opus Cuatro-Sinfonico.
CDs are available during and after the orchestra.
Members of the orchestra: Simon Fahey - 1st tenor / Aníbal Bresco - 2th tenor / Hernando Irahola - bariton / Federico Galiana - bas
