Classic Connections 2019: international visitors’ programme of classical music in Antwerp

During the multidisciplinary festival Klara in deSingel (Antwerp), Flanders Arts Institute organises an international visitors’ programme for classical music professionals to discover our diverse music scene.

On Saturday 26 January 2019, radio station Klara will be taking over deSingel for the eighth time in a row. For an entire day, live music will sound out in all its halls, studios and corridors. With – as is usual for Klara – classical music in all its manifestations. From baroque to contemporary, from jazz to world music, and from musical theatre to debate.
