A note from the conductor…

“For the final concert of the 10th Koorbiënnale, I was looking for something colourful. This is such cheerful music, with a lot of swing. It is a very emotional piece, going from dark to light, and from very fast to very calm, and back. A harmonium is an unusual, but lovely instrument, so fitted to a concert hall. Our performance will begin and end with the St Bavo Choir School joining our own Festival Choir. And we have a nice surprise at the very end of the mass.”

Damask Vocal Quartet, special guests during the 2017 Choral Biennale, help coach the Festival Choir, and perform the soloists roles.
