August 2019 (Program)
This year 2019 carries good and bad news:
First, the bad news:
The Elzenveld Chapel will not be accessible this year.
In 2019, all buildings that housed this magnificent chapel was entrusted to a private contractor for very important work. The chapel will be closed. What a pity.
We will keep a wonderful memory of this very successful midday concert season.
And then, the good news:
Since we are not giving up on a good idea, we are going to present you three concerts at the Van Celst Institute, located at Sint Jakobusplein, 15, a charming neogothic chapel with a beautiful restored Merklin organ. A very nice place to discover.
Here is what we propose:
Three lunchconcerts, the first of which, on August 17, will open the 25th Antwerpse Orgelwandeling (25th Antwerp organ promenade). Two other concerts will follow: August 24th and 31st each time from 12.15 pm to 1.00 pm (according to the bulletin Calcant Courant n ° 68, Jan Van Mol)
