Midi-minimes kicks off today and has a great programme throughout the summer.
Every summer since 1986, the Midis-Minimes festival has hosted daily 35-minute concerts at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels or Notre Dame du Sablon. With its wide-ranging classical musical programme of pieces from the Middle Ages to the 21st century – including non-European music – the festival features singers, pianists, small ensembles and much more. There are dozens of concerts to choose from so you’re sure to find the perfect opportunity to expand your musical knowledge over your lunch hour!
The concert series starts today, 3 July and continues to 31 August, with concerts held every Monday-Thursday lunchtime at 12:15. Tickets are only €6, but you can also purchase a ten ticket pass for just €52. It’s incredible value and a great way to enjoy the summer in Brussels.
Today’s first concert features Sylvia Huang – violin, Stéphanie Huang – cello, and the Young Belgian Strings led by Dirk Van de Moortel. The programme includes Grieg and Holberg.
