United Music of Brussels

The Belgian National Orchestra, la Monnaie and Bozar break through their walls and join forces to bring music to the streets of the Brussels city centre.

The 5th edition of United Music Of Brussels presents a musical adventure that brings artists together across different atmospheres and in close contact with the public.

This year, the festival consists of 3 days of musical walks. Let yourself be carried through a different district each day to the rhythm of familiar tunes. Let’s meet on 24, 25 and 26 November in the galleries of the Sablon, Bozar and the Galerie de la Reine, but also in many other places, and experience unique colourful moments.

It is the perfect occasion to enjoy intimate concerts while strolling through the city. You get the chance to attend a free symphonic concert by the Belgian National Orchestra with the world premiere of Jean-Luc Fafchamps' First Symphony (Ombres Célestes) in the Henry le Boeuf Hall at Bozar. This concert is also on the programme of the Ars Musica festival. Subscribe here!
