The music must go on !
Dear patrons, season-ticket holders and public of the MuCH season,
The Music Chapel team and I are pleased to present you with an ambitious and optimistic 20-21 season. The program of concerts and events is varied and of high quality, and thus meets our artistic mission of training, excellence and dissemination.
This new season consists of more than 20 Prestige concerts, numerous masterclasses by our masters and guests, as well as Guest, Laboratory and dDiscovery concerts, and of course magnificent AD (Artists Diploma) concerts, the very essence of our dissemination activity.
Let’s mention a few artists by order of their chronological appearance this season: Louis Lortie, the Rolston String Quartet & Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden, Anne & Yann Queffélec, Natania & Gary Hoffman, Kerson Leong, Frank Braley, Jùlia Pusker, le Trio Zadig, Sophie Koch, le Vlaams Radio Koor, An Pierlé, Miguel da Silva, Corina Belcea, Rosalind Ventris, Daniel Weissman, Augustin Dumay & Hélène Mercier, le quatuor Adorno, Soledad, Stella Chen, Victoria Vassilenko, Stéphane Degout, Bernard Foccroulle, Jodie Devos, Julie Gebhart, Denis Kohzukhin, Christine Lee, Philippe Koch, François Frédéric Guy, Xavier Phillips, and many others …
As the season begins under a cloud of uncertainty in the wake of the health crisis which has so severely affected the cultural and performing arts sector, we have decided to remain optimistic, while being flexible in case the Chapel has to adapt to changes in performance conditions. From the start of the lockdown, the Music Chapel has demonstrated its desire to maintain a link between its artists and the public. That is why it presented a season of 20 concerts during the summer entitled “Eté Musical”, and is adapting itself to propose a MuCH 20-21 season that is as normal as possible. We want our institution to be a symbol of HOPE – for the performing artists, for the audience who cherish these concerts, and for the survival of culture in a world that needs it so much.
The renewal of your season ticket and your support now are essential to the launch of this new season after such a difficult period for all cultural actors. We invite you to consult the season-ticket formulas for this season here.
As we launch this new season with “HOPE” as our theme, we want to reaffirm how important the experience of live music is to us.
We also wish to thank all our audience members, season-ticket holders, patrons and structural partners, especially the Province of Walloon Brabant, the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and the National Lottery for the support they have provided to this 6th MuCH season.
We wish you a wonderful MuCH 2020-21 season at the Music Chapel!
The music must go on…
