You have probably already heard of Quentin Dujardin. The musician performed his song “Ave Maria” for 5 minutes in the church of Crupet (Belgium) before being interrupted by the police. Quentin Dujardin, artist ambassador of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation, leads us to reflect on the status of the artist and the injustices to which he has been subjected since the beginning of the health crisis. Like a symbol, Quentin carries with him the values of Yehudi Menuhin: to give a voice to the voiceless.
Today more than ever, the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation is supporting Quentin and the musicians by organising an online concert with a strong message: Music is essential to our societies.
Perched on the Coudenberg hill overlooking the city, the Palace of Brussels was undoubtedly one of the most beautiful princely residences in Europe. The music of Quentin Dujardin (guitar) and Didier Laloy (accordion) will resonate in the archaeological site of the Coudenberg Palace.
