Music Chapel Festival 2020

Beyond Beethoven, 26.11 > 10.12.2020

Music Chapel Festival 2020, an edition like no other

The circumstances surrounding the second lockdown have led us to be ever more creative and to rethink the 11th edition of the Music Chapel Festival devoted to Beethoven and his contemporaries. This edition will therefore be proposed in a digital version without an audience. It will be broadcast for free for you to enjoy at home! However, if you wish to support the artists of the Music Chapel, you can make a donation via this link!

Thanks to its loyal partners, the Brussels Philharmonic & Flagey on one hand and the Biel Solothurn Symphony Orchestra (TOBS) on the other, two Prestige concerts are going ahead: they are scheduled on 2 and 4 December.

Moreover, the Music Chapel is welcoming, in its Haas Teichen Studio, four chamber music concerts that will be broadcast between 26 November and 10 December.

These concerts will be streamed on our website, on our Youtube channel or on our Facebook page!

All dates and complete programs can be found on the links at the end of the newsletter.

This unprecedented version of a festival spread over several emblematic venues and in digital version, in accordance with this year’s specific requirements, bears witness to the desire to mark the end of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth on a high note.

The Music Chapel wishes to thank the RTBF, its long-standing partner, for broadcasting three evenings devoted to the festival on 2, 3 and 4 December on Musiq’3.
