American Friends of Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel
Founded in 1939, the Music Chapel is a centre of musical excellence where young artists in residence, selected from around the world, are in contact with, and benefit from the advice of, leading artists, musical masters – not only through masterclasses, but also by sharing the stage together. >>Discover our story
Over the past 15 years, the Chapel has grown within its own laboratory, based in Waterloo, Belgium. It has also developed a network of important partners around the world and wishes to collaborate with leading American and Canadian institutions.
The aim of this development on the North American continent is clear: to create bridges that will make it possible for young artists to grow on both sides of the Atlantic, in markets that are sometimes a bit too far apart. This process relies not only on exchanges of projects and artists, but also on exchanges of initiated audiences wishing to contribute to the success of this connection around transmission. >>American Friends Project
