The European Union Choir returns to one of their old flames: after having marked their 50th anniversary, in 2008, with a performance of their beloved Mendelssohn’s Elijah, the Choir now proudly presents you his first, undeservedly less-known oratorio, Saint Paul.
Perhaps more than any other classical music genre, opera seems to divide people into two categories: those who adore it and those who can’t stand it. The extreme emotions, the complicated plots, the omnipresent music can become an argument for either party, as “uplifting” can easily be viewed as “absurd”.

The Creation, Joseph Haydn's magnificent work, began the cycle of collaboration of The European Union Choir with the Brussels Orchestral Ensemble and it now commemorates its 20th anniversary. We spoke with its founder and director, Jacques Vanherenthals who confesses that the beauty of the works sometimes drive him to distraction in the middle of a concert. Read more...
