1000 Voices for Peace: fellowship concert in Bruges

Brugge ontmoet Australië4

1000 Voices for Peace is the fellowship of 22 Belgian choirs and 17 choirs from all over the world, from countries which were involved in the Great War. Together they make up 1,000 voices that seek to carry a clear message of peace. 1000 Voices for Peace is the Flanders Festival Brussels’ contribution to the Great War commemorations.

Cantores subscribes to this ardent plea for peace and welcomes the Brighton Secondary School Vocal Ensemble from Australia. On 5 November 2014, they will perform a best-of from their repertoire during a fellow concert at the cultural center of Bruges in Bruges.
