A choir trail and closing concert

In collaboration with the Belgian National Orchestra and La Monnaie, Bozar presents Let's Sing Ensemble. 10 composers wrote a song each and drew their inspiration from the city of Brussels. They represent different generations and styles, from classical to electronic. The repertoire they composed reflects the enormous cultural and musical diversity of Brussels and challenges you to explore new musical horizons.

 

The invited composers: Laïla Amezian & Tuur Florizoone, Nicolas Michaux, Oriana Ikomo, Avalanche Kaito, Françoiz Breut & François Schultz, Cabane, Laryssa Kim, Esinam, Judith Kiddo, Maarten Van Ingelgem & Els Moors.

 

The repertoire is available for free on the Bozar website including video portraits of the composers, scores and audio tutorials.​​​​​​​
After the choir trail, the highlight of Let's Zing Ensemble is a grand collaborative singing concert on Sunday 23 June, during the Fête de la Musique! During this concert, the new repertoire will be performed, accompanied by the musicians of the Young Belgian Strings, members of the Belgian National Orchestra and the Orchestra Academy. The orchestrations will be written by the renowned composer Dirk Brossé, who will conduct the concert together with Dirk Van de Moortel (artistic director Young Belgian Strings).
