In 2019, Music Chapel goes green!
Since 01.01.2019, we have decided to reduce our paper publications, and therefore we do not publish our What’s up anymore. From now on, you will receive a monthly newsletter to keep you informed about all our On Tour concerts. We’re also working on a brand new digital agenda & website to help you find your events easily, so stay tuned… For now, here’s February monthly e-mail, we hope you enjoy it!
Winter is a busy time of the year for our soloists in residence! February makes no exception, and Music Chapel will be on numerous stages in Belgium and abroad this month….

1. Community Concerts:
The Community Projects chair of Music Chapel, created in 2013 with the support of Fondation Futur 21, allows to broaden the field of social applications offered to our soloists in residence.
