10th “Concert des Cœurs” with the Munt Children’s and Youth Choir
On 16 December our Children’s and Youth Choir will be singing in a Christmas concert for the benefit of the private be.Source foundation in the splendid Church of Our Lady of Sablon in Brussels.
It’s a busy period for the Munt Children’s and Youth Choir! Having performed at a gala dinner for the French president Emmanuel Macron at the chateau in Laken, in mid-December they have a Christmas concert engagement at the Sablon Church in the centre of Brussels.
The choir will be singing the best and finest works from the Christmas music repertoire in the company of soloists from the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and an eight-member instrumental ensemble. A cosy Sunday afternoon in a magical Christmas atmosphere.
The net income from this “Concert des Cœurs” will go to the projects run by be.Source. This private foundation is dedicated to helping less fortunate older people and also supports the Munt’s social programme: “A bridge between two worlds.”
