Concerts classiques au Jardin des citoyens


Enjoy classical concerts at the new Citizens’ Garden in September and October, weekdays at 13.00.

Explore the new Citizens’ Garden with a series of classical concerts. From 2 September until 30 October, weekdays at 13.00, 30-minute free performances will allow visitors to soak up the new garden.

The line-up includes virtuosos who have won international competitions, such as Jeong Hyoun ‘Christine’ Lee and rising stars, like Florian Delporte and Elen Shahinans.
The concerts will include a variety of classical instruments from the string and woodwind families, as well as the accordion and harpsichord. The highly talented musicians are based in Brussels or passing through. The concerts reflect the European Parliament’s commitment to culture and its support for young artists.

The Citizens Garden opened on 1 September as a green oasis amid the Brussels European Quarter. The European Parliament has helped to preserve Brussels’ heritage by restoring the garden of Antoine Wiertz. The concerts hark back to the soirées and gatherings organised by the 19th century artist, who modelled his garden on ancient Greece and Rome.

Please note that you will be asked to wear a facemask at the concerts and follow distancing instructions. Please arrive early and take a seat before the performances begin. In case of bad weather, appropriate measures will be taken. Announcements will be made on Twitter as early as possible.
