Joseph Jongen 150 Festival
2023 is an opportunity to pay tribute to the solar work of Joseph Jongen, a Belgian composer emblematic of the Art Nouveau period, whose 150th birthday is being celebrated. The student body and teaching staff will be delving into his musical career to offer around fifteen concerts.We'll be celebrating Art Nouveau with music, over 4 weeks open to all those who want to (re)discover this great composer. The festival will take Joseph Jongen's work beyond the informed public. His fine, elegant writing and refined, luminous pages are an enchantment that will be a discovery for many. The event is therefore setting out to conquer new audiences, crossing the Belgian composer's musical path with the emblematic Art Nouveau venues he visited throughout his life.
