Interactive concert for high school students (9th until 12th grade)
Fight radicalization! During this interactive concert we will target the disarming role music can play in the lives of young people. Music offers solace, strengthens emotions and assuages growth pains. How can music influence your world view? In a preparatory workshop art and music educators will tackle these questions with their students. Musical brainstorming will lead to a spectacular concert, filled with classical and contemporary music. All this accompanied by video images of young moviemakers from Brussels.
In partnership with BOZAR en Jeunesses Musicales de Bruxelles, Jeugd en Muziek Brussel

I imagine a world where we don’t fight, where there is no violence or hate, where there are no weapons to create hurt, where there is no prejudice against one another, where there is no anger, a world where we don’t wonder when the next tragic event will take place. I imagine a world where there is peace, love, unity, happiness, togetherness, joy, people helping one another, a world where everyone smiles and laughs and hugs one another. I would like to believe I’m not too much of a dreamer to one day see a world like this. #worldpeace #oneworld
It is BOHO Players’ pleasure to welcome Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen at our two performances of La Captive. Vluchtelingenwerk is committed to helping people who are fleeing from war, violence and persecution, and defends daily the rights of refugee men, women and children. Vluchtelingenwerk will bring three witnesses to La Captive, who will tell their personal stories during our performances. BOHO Players is very pleased to thus enrich the musical story of La Captive.
BOHO Players is delighted to announce our new partnership with Aulos Music Management. With immediate effect Aulos Music Management will be the exclusive booking agent representing BOHO Players for Belgium and the international market. BOHO Players is particularly proud to join Aulos’ roster of emerging artists. Aulos’ focus on interdisciplinary creative activity, new audiences and on the alternative concert circuit are a perfect fit for BOHO Players. We look forward to expanding our artistic horizons and national and international profile in close partnership with Marjan Hellraeth and her team at Aulos Music Management.
On Saturday December 12th, 2015, BOHO Players will present a unique family concert (at 11 a.m. in Dutch and at 12 p.m. in French) at the Russian Classics Festival of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel: “My penpal Tchaikovsky”
In a series of flashbacks the baroness von Meck takes us on a tour of Tchaikovsky’s life, his biggest successes and his deepest despairs. This program is based on the extensive correspondence between the master and von Meck, and combines theater, music and audience interaction. With musical excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, the Andante Cantabile, the Mélodie from Souvenirs d’un lieu cherand other famous works, performed by soloists of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and BOHO Players, under the direction of David Ramael.
BOHO Players has set up a unique partnership for this concert with two phenomenal organizations: Bednet and Take-off. Bednet (in Flanders) and Take-off (in Wallonia) connect gravely ill children in primary and secondary education with their class via computer, so they can follow classes live from the comfort of their home. Thanks to the generous support of Proximus, this concert will be streamed live via internet, so Bednet and Take-off children can also be present for this family concert!
