The history of the Collegium Musicum Eindhoven goes back to the eighties of the last century. In 1988, the Muziek in de Cathrien foundation was founded, with the aim of organizing concerts in the St. Catharina Church. In 1997 the merger with the Friends of the Orgel foundation (founded in 1986) followed. Since then the name was Stichting Kerkconcerten Eindhoven, renamed Collegium Musicum Eindhoven in mid-2012.
The main activity of this Collegium is the organization of the concert series “Muziek in de Cathrien”, which has become a living concept in Eindhoven and the region.
The board of Collegium Musicum Eindhoven foundation and the organization of the concerts are in the hands of volunteers. The programming of the concerts is the work of a program committee, consisting of professional musicians. Artistic director is Ruud Huijbregts.
