Concert of the European Union Choir, 100 years Saint-Saëns
To commemorate the centenary of the death of Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921), the European Union Choir calls on the Ensemble Orchestral de Bruxelles and 5 great soloists.
The choir director Dirk de Moor conducts the two vocal masterpieces of Camille Saint-Saëns.
Since 1958, the year in which the European Union Choir was founded, it aims to perpetuate the legacy of the great classical composers and to use music, as a universal language, as a bridge between the people of Europe and the whole world. The Choir consists of 80 singers from many countries and continents.
The European Union Choir has often been asked to sing at European events and has performed in many capitals and cities. In collaboration with major European orchestras, well-known conductors and soloists, it performed choral works from the repertoire of Baroque to contemporary music.
