The biennial "Belgian Music Days" was born in 2018 from the idea of bringing together all the institutional linguistic entities that make up Belgium around a common musical heritage. The chronological framework concerns music written from 1830 to the present day, with a particular emphasis on the music of living composers, without however being a festival of creation, and by including, as disciplines taught in the conservatories, jazz and electroacoustic music.
The Belgian Music Days want to invest each edition in a different city, where the main institutions of musical education in our country are located and where there are concert and performance venues capable of hosting the most varied formations, ranging from symphony orchestras to chamber music ensembles, from installations to mixed music or electroacoustic performances. Thus, the 2018 edition was hosted in Leuven at the Luca-School of Arts and the 2020 edition in Mons in collaboration with Arts2, Musiques Nouvelles, the Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie and Arsonic. The next edition will take place in Eupen from 12 to 13 March 2022 in collaboration with the OostbelgienFestival. https://www.obf.be/de/
