Concert Prelude to the National Holiday 2021

Following the dramatic floods that have hit our country and in respect of the national mourning that will be observed on July 20, the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition, together with its partners Bozar and the Belgian National Orchestra, has decided to cancel the concert traditionally given as a prelude to the National Holiday on the eve of July 21. 

We thank you for your understanding in these sad circumstances.


This concert was organised thanks to the support of the FPS Chancellery of the Prime Minister and the National Lottery.
