Aquarius Choir Belgium

What's in a name? In Flanders this ensemble was the front runner for new music and new types of concerts. Maybe it ran too fast, and collided with administrative incapacity and hesitancy from the public. In May 2007 the approach was changed and the message was given a new form. AQUARIUS was born. The motto remains: being ahead of one's time, being mindful of the new astrological period that comes under the sign of the Zodiac 'Aquarius'. From now on new music will be in dialogue with old music. The dialogue will be based on universal themes: war/peace, misery/passion, belief/disbelief, democracy/dictatorship, sound/image. An AQUARIUS concert aspires to be more than simply an aesthetic experience.
