Feliz Navidad !!
The BCC was happy to meet again in October to rehearse, after a 6-month break. Even with strict protocols in place, we decided to stop meeting after only two rehearsals. Better to be safe than sorry!

Luckily, we can still meet virtually, and we have put together a little Christmas video which we hope you will enjoy! We chose one of our favourite Christmas songs: ‘Feliz Navidad’ by José Feliciano, in an arrangement by Paul Langford. This song has a special place in our heart as we all have fond memories of singing it in our annual Christmas caroling in the Paul Brien hospital in Brussels and in our traditional Christmas dinner. We will have to skip both this year, but hope to spread good cheer with this video instead! Click on 'more' to watch the video.

Abendlied virtual choir
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to cancel our ‘Abendlied’ concert. Although we cannot share our wonderful programme with a live audience in a church acoustic – all is not lost!

We hope you enjoy our singing and that it gives you some inner peace in these stressful times, and we encourage you to share it with loved ones near and far.

CantaRode Choral Festival
Two amazing Philippine choirs and a very good German choir took away most of the prizes at the Cantarode Choir Competition, but they didn't take away our pleasure and our enjoyment growing as a choir, pursuing perfection in our singing, doing some proper team building, and connecting with plenty of choral music lovers. What a great weekend! The jury awarded us with 86,5% (ranking 4th), a prize for most interesting programme, and an invitation to perform at the Musica Sacra festival in Maastricht in September 2020!

10 YEARS !
Exactly 10 years ago, some students from the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel decided to start up a choir, just for the pleasure of singing beautiful a cappella music together. 10 years along the line, the Brussels Chamber Choir has evolved into one of Belgium’s leading choirs, thanks to many rehearsals, concerts, workshops and performances, as well as to the passion and dedication of each and every one of its members.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we will give a festive concert in the Notre-Dame du Sacré-Coeur church in Etterbeek. The repertoire has been chosen by the members of the choir and consists of a selection of favourite pieces from our repertoire over the last 10 years, including works by Rheinberger, Vaughan Williams, Rachmaninoff, Duruflé, Howells, Tavener, Gjeilo, Lauridsen, Mäntyjärvi, Pärt, Elberdin, Runestad and Charlton. And the choir’s composer-in-residence Jan Moeyaert has written a new work especially for the occasion. A concert not to be missed! Click on 'more' for practical details.

Happy Birthday, Brussels Chamber Choir !!
The Brussels Chamber Choir celebrates its 10th birthday in 2017! We have come a long way in these 10 years, and would like to thank you, our audience, for your support and encouragement!

To mark this special year, we have decided to record our first professional CD. We gather in the beautiful chapel of the former convent in Huldenberg for two recording sessions (March & June), and a CD-release for the label ETCETERA is planned for the autumn. The programme for the CD will focus on beautiful NEW choral music, all of it “Made in Belgium”.
