BOZAR offers teachers and pupils a taste of the inspirational power of singing through the international Cantania project. Are you a teacher in primary education looking for a project that will sharpen children’s creativity, concentration, long-term memory and spirit of collaboration? If so, sign up for Cantania!

Over four days of training, you will be immersed in an unique musical composition and learn tips and tricks to help you to get your class singing in a fun way. We also look at vocal techniques by working on breathing, vocal placement and timbre. In the meantime, you will get to work in the class on the music piece.

On Saturday 8 May 2021, all the pupils and teachers of Brussels come together in BOZAR’s Henry Le Bœuf Hall for a festive final concert accompanied by the Belgian National Orchestra. A fun and educational musical adventure for pupils and teachers alike!
