With the international project Cantania, BOZAR allows teachers and pupils to experience the inspirational power of song. Are you a primary school teacher seeking a project to stimulate the creativity, concentration, long-term memory and team spirit of your pupils?

Take part in the 4th edition of Cantania and enrol for the training sessions at the Centre for Fine Arts. Over four days you will practise vocal techniques focusing on breathing, placing the voice and timbre with advice from experienced singing teachers. You will also bring to the classroom a piece of music written especially for Cantania by the Belgian composer Jan Van Outryve and the writer Haryanti Frateur. With his poetic and sensual music he is able to evoke themes on identity in a wonderful tale of a young girl who sets off in search of her roots.

On Saturday 5 May 2018 all the pupils and teachers from the Brussels projects will come together at BOZAR's large Henry Le Boeuf Hall for the celebratory closing concert led by the Belgian National Orchestra.

Cantania is a co-production by the Belgian National Orchestra and is part of Singing Brussels, an initiative designed to get the whole city singing, right through the year.
