October marks the beginning of a new season at the Music Chapel! The artists and the team are very impatient to welcome you again, so to keep you (and them) waiting, here’s a glance at the upcoming events of this month!
1. MuCH Music 2019-2020, season 5: 80th Anniversary!
The MuCH season has succeeded in finding a place for itself, in the space of a few years, in the cultural landscape of Walloon Brabant and of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation. A new public has shown its enthusiasm for the Chapel’s program and project.
The 2019-2020 season is exceptional as it takes place in the context of the Music Chapel’s 80th anniversary, with the exceptional support of the National Lotery. The season consists of 80 concerts and masterclasses, and welcomes a lot of Master & Guest Masters in residence as well as several prestigious guests.
Let’s then have a quick look at our Opening Concerts!
The first Guest Master in residence to open this season will be the mezzo-soprano Sophie Koch, accompanied by the singers of the Music Chapel on 01.10 for a lyrical evening! After the concert, join Sophie Koch & the MuCH singers for a special Around the Notes (reservations here)!

The second Opening concert will welcome Claire-Marie Le Guay, for an exceptional concert around her book La vie est plus belle en musique, released in November 2018. Meet her & get a signed copy of her book & CD after the concert!
For the last concert of this Opening series, the cellist Ella Van Poucke will indulge you with her Artist Diploma, the last concert of her cycle as an Artist in residence.
This concert will be live-streamed on Music Chapel’s Youtube channel, Facebook Page & on www.musicchapel.org!
