Ex-K3 Klaasje Meijer may open the Hageland Klassiek concert season on Sunday 11 September. “When I was reading in the newspapers when he left K3 that Klaasje was going to the leakage conservatory and, moreover, still embracing classical music, I was ready to contact him,” says Bart Debbaut of Hageland Klassiek.

Klaasje even announced his concert in Tienen in a video on YouTube. “Everyone may know me as a singer, but as a flutist I can open the concert season at Hageland Klassiek in September. I do this with pianist Vital Stahievitch. We play Mozart, Chopin and Clara Schumann, among others. people. ” Bart Debbaut of Hageland Klassiek is delighted with the arrival of Klaasje.

But there is much more news. The concert on November 22 at CC De Kruisboog is very special. On Bach’s iconic Goldberg Variations, played by accordionist Philippe Thuriot, two professional dancers compete against the enthusiasm of a dancer with Down Syndrome. “It will definitely be one of the most talked about concerts on our fourth concert season,” says board member Ives Rigaux. “And then we didn’t even mention the worldwide creation of new music by Jef Neve and Jeroen D’hoe. Or on the Firgun Ensemble, the new winners of Supernovas. ”

Hageland Klassiek is the successor to Klassiek in de Kapel. “We have a new name, a new board and therefore also a particularly ambitious program,” said brand new director Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort, who also concerts himself. “In October, in addition to Beethoven, I will also play Chopin’s music,” explained the most recent Belgian piano laureate in the Queen Elizabeth Competition. “Chopin has never been in the organization’s program before. So I would like to change that. “

Wide audience

For the first time, Hageland Klassiek is also organizing a school performance, in collaboration with CC De Kruisboog. On February 7, Alfama’s Quartet will do just that with a wonderful performance on the grandmasters of the string quartet. A month later, scheduled the famous and haunted Stabat Mater Pergolesi. “We created a very nice mix that will attract a wide audience”, concluded Bart Debbaut.

The program’s booklet will reach the mailbox of more than 30,000 families in Hageland in mid-June and is already available at www.hagelandklassiek.be. Until the end of June you can enjoy a 10 percent early bird discount.
