Thank you, visitor

Dear visitor,
After the 59th festival is over, we are once again very proud that we can contently look back on many beautiful, musical memories. It was a short but powerful and happy instrumental festival with a lot of musical highlights.  The surprising participation and results of the Colombian musicians and the Tokyo ensemble who participated (in a different line-up) in spite of their sadness after the earthquake are but a few of the souvenirs of cultural exchange and warmhearted meetings we cherish.

All participants in the various categories made a powerful impression on both the jury and the audience. You will find more details on results and reactions on our site. On behalf of all of our staff I would like to thank all cooperators and everyone who contributed to the success of our 59th festival.. We are proud and delighted to have welcomed an odd 3.140 younsters from 21 countries and have had them enjoy this unforgettable musical get-together.
We hope you have enjoyed participating and together with you we are already now looking forward to the 60th festival, a vocal edition.
Jan Coninx, President
