New Year’s Concert

Brussels Philharmonic

orchestral
Cancelled
Sun 10 Jan 2021
This event is cancelled.

Experience the start of 2021 in a joyous euphoria

As is traditional, the Concertgebouw opens the New Year with the whirling dance music of the 'Kings of the Waltz' Johann Strauss Jnr and Snr. The star of the day is soprano Mercedes Arcuri, who – especially when conducted by Valentina Peleggi – is certain to pull out all of the stops in a selection from the operas and operettas of Rossini and Offenbach. Let yourself be swept away by lively rhythms and melodies, and experience the start of 2021 in a joyous euphoria! Cheers!
