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

BOHO Players will be opening the 2015-16 season at BOZAR. This festival with a difference, in which boundaries between genres and disciplines are blurred, has plenty to offer both lovers of classical music and clubbers. BOZAR opens its season with an evening of live events – in every corner of the Centre for Fine Arts – that refuse to be confined by pigeonholes and straitjackets. Experiments with electronic and classical music, installations, and video works flow seamlessly into each other. BOHO Players, featuring soprano Diana Gouglina, will collaborate with Crew Online for a complete sensory experience with works by Ives, Vivaldi, Pärt, Mahler and world premiere performance of a work by young Brooklyn composer Mitchell McCarthy. As the 150th season gets under way, BOZAR both cherishes the memory of its predecessors and keeps on innovating. Art is an open laboratory, so it is only natural that the Bozar Music Opening Night should be all about accessibility and diversity.
