You can enjoy not only the whistling of birds in the restful greenery of the woods of Waterloo just outside Brussels; for decades music can also be heard here among nature. Indeed, the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel is where the crème de la crème of young international soloists study. After graduating from the world’s most prestigious conservatories, musicians come from all over the world to delve further into the repertoire. With intensive study, practical lessons from a sublime teaching staff and master classes by the world’s most famous performers – here the next generation is prepared for a glittering career in classical music. Consequently, many of them soon end up as laureates of the famous Queen Elisabeth Competition.

But there is no need to wait until the competition to hear these musicians at work. Up-and-coming talents are given the chance to showcase their skills as part of their training. In fact, the chapel also houses a beautiful concert hall where students present their repertoire to the public during an exclusive concert series. For several seasons, Casco Phil has been a faithful coaching partner for the students. Thanks to our collaboration, students also get the chance to perform the more difficult concertos or other great orchestral work. So, they can join us in showcasing their symphonic ambitions. Surely you want to discover that too?
