Vic Nees became 75 in March and our Festival didn't want to ignore that important anniversary. Talking about the European Music Festival for Young People without involving Vic Nees in the conversation is impossible. As an important autority in the field of vocal music he fulfilled the task as jury member for a total of 15 times, spread over the years 1968-2002.
He also expressed his musical knowledge in the 21 compulsory songs he composed for our festival. Compulsory songs that remain an important value in the repertory of many national and international choirs. Since his farewell in 2002, when he passed on his task to a younger generation of Flemish musicians, he remains involved behind the scenes. For that reason we cannot leave his 75th birthday unnoticed. That's why we did invite you to attend our concert of honour 'Ad multos annos' that will be organised on Saturday March 12th at 8.15 PM in the Hubertustheater, stationsstraat 25 in Neerpelt.
Seen the limited number of seets, we ask you to confirm your presence with the number of people before March 1st 2011.
