Concert Tours to Belgium

Perform music concerts in Brussels, Bruges and the cities of Belgium

Belgium is an ideal close-to-home music tour option just a half day journey from the UK.  A music tour to this safe and friendly region gives students the chance to perform to appreciative audiences in many diverse venues.

Birthplace of the inventor of the saxophone, Belgium offers a plethora of different places for music groups to perform, from medieval cathedrals in cities like Brussels, Ghent or Antwerp, to bustling market squares in small towns such as Bruges and Ostend. Performing in WW1 venues at Ypres and the Menin Gate promise moving and memorable experiences for school groups.

When not performing, your students can explore places like Kinderland, the Flanders Fields Museum, a Chocolate Museum in Bruges and much more.

Educationally this is an ideal location and many of the tourist sites and concert locations will hold a special charm for adults and young people alike.

Gower Music Tours & Belgium

Belgium was one of the first educational tour destinations we offered 40 years ago before music tours were even thought of for schools or adult ensembles.  

 

We are never complacent however and strive continually to increase our contacts and find new and exciting venues for performance and places of interest to visit - always tailored to your specific requirements.
