Concerts

The Concert Society (Concertvereniging) vzw was born in the lap of the Brussels Royal Conservatory. Each year the Society programmes a series of concerts in which the students at the Conservatory get the chance to gain experience of performing on stage. Teachers and students work together intensively to prepare for these concerts, an experience which undoubtedly makes a positive contribution to the students' education.

In addition the Society organises numerous master classes and colloquia given by nationally and internationally famed musicians. All these activities lead to an intensive interaction between the academic and professional worlds.

Many initiatives take place in co-production with other institutions and musical societies such as the Royal College of Music in London, the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique of Paris, the Musikhochschulen of Vienna, Graz and Cologne, the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, the Koninklijke Conservatoria in Rotterdam and in Den Haag, the Lemmensinstituut in Louvain, the Filharmonische Vereniging van Brussel, Europalia, and the arts festivals "Ars Musica" and "De barokke Lente van de Zavel".

The Royal Conservatory also works hard to conserve its heritage. The exceptionally rich library with around a million works and scores is after all not only an inexhaustible source of material for scientific research, it also the basis for a varied programme which closely follows every evolution of the musical landscape.
