Do you remember the organ walk that took place on March 19 in the streets of Brussels, to discover the organ heritage of our City?

In each one of the churches, a mini-concert was given to appreciate the sounds of these instruments that are part of our heritage.

We wish to thank all the organists, François Houtart (la Madeleine), Tamara Rosselet, Charlène Bertholet and Laurent Fobelets from the organ class of Benoît Mernier (le Sablon), Yuko Wataya (Protestant chapel), Guy Van Waas (les Carmes), Susan Carol Woodson (Saint Nicolas) and Jan Van Mol (Sainte-Catherine).

Here is a short report with the collaboration of BX1

This year 2021 ends with mixed feelings for everyone and particularly for the artists.

We celebrated the arrival of spring with a magnificent concert by the Sonoro Quartet, with the support of the Flemish Community.
During the fall, the Chapel for Europe Festival took up residence in that cute chapel, which hosted 5 magnificent concerts, with the benefit of the municipality of Etterbeek, City of Brussels and the Brussels-Capital Region.


The year 2022 opens in the spring, with a musical trip to Brussels, highlighting the organs of our capital, part of our cultural heritage. It will be saturday March 19 (with the collaboration of npo Calcant).
As for the Chapel for Europe Festival, the dates have already been set: mark your calendars for September 28, October 5, 12, 19 and 26, 2022.
