MUSICA MUNDI, internationally recognised for the high quality of its courses and its chamber music festival for young people, is once again making headlines with the announcement that it will be opening the Musica Mundi School as of September 2018.
MUSICA MUNDI needs no introduction, its courses and festival are amongst the best in Europe and its 20th anniversary in 2018 won’t go by unnoticed with the opening of the Musica Mundi School. This new international school, the formula for which is completely new and innovative for Belgium, will provide a complete general education from the 5th year of primary school to the 6th year of secondary school, thus enabling young people to simultaneously pursue their professional musical training and their general studies. Located as it is in the historic domain of Fichermont in Lasne – a protected and highly symbolic site where a monastery dedicated to peace and victims of conflicts was erected, the school will welcome young people from all over the world, recruited on the basis of their talent. They will benefit from the teachings of extraordinary musicians such as Maxim Vengerov, the school’s ambassador, Ivry Gitlis, Mischa Maisky, Menahem Pressler, and many more besides, who are all members of the ‘Musica Mundi family’.
