In these difficult times for artists, bringing support to musicians is one of the priorities of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.
Last December, the Foundation launched its own online streaming platform following Yehudi Menuhin’s mantra: “giving a voice to the voiceless.” CONCERT WITH YOU is a virtual stage dedicated to help musicians that have been impacted by the pandemic. Through this initiative the IYMF support musicians by offering a place where artists can promote their creations and by collecting donations 100% used to help artists producing new original videos.
On the 8th of March at 7pm (Brussels time) discover the very first CONCERT WITH YOU Online Live Session with incredible artists and special guests.
The Brussels Chamber Orchestra
In 1999, the common passion and investment of young people virtuosos for chamber music gave birth to the Brussels Chamber Orchestra. With six different nationalities, the BCO is a formidable cultural and artistic laboratory in the heart of Europe. Each work executed is enriched by this mixture of Asian and European cultures. The deep search for a specific style gives a unique sound to the group. The BCO masters a wide repertoire, from Vivaldi to Britten, including Mozart, Elgar, Bartók, Piazzolla, Hindemith or Schoenberg. The BCO is involved in the creation of educational projects and has the privilege of being an ambassador of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation.
