Voices of Passion 2021 - 2022

Last year, together with 30CC and the City of Leuven, the decision was made to postpone the 'Voices of Passion’ festival, which was planned from 2 to 9 May 2020, to the Spring of 2021. However, the covid-19 crisis continues, and we cannot avoid postponing the festival once more.

The polyphony festival will be split into a first part in Autumn 2021 and a second part in Spring 2022. The edition retains its extra-large size, in which you can also count with some extra concerts on the occasion of the 500th birthday of Philippus de Monte (Mechelen 1521 - Prague 1603).

The new dates and the detailed programme are expected in the course of June. We will keep you informed.
