Music is an essential part of Europe’s cultural history. The House of European History produced a series of short concerts performed and filmed in the exhibition space at the end of the coronavirus lockdown, which we are now delighted to screen for the public.

Come sit outside on the grass of Parc Leopold after your visit of the museum to enjoy a rich and varied repertoire interpreted by talented musicians. Travel with your senses across Europe's 19th and 20th centuries, from Beethoven, Debussy, Handel and Halvorsen, to the successes of the Roaring Twenties' popular music.

To attend the event safely with respect to the sanitary measures in place, please register at this link.

A food truck will be present on site for snacks & drinks.


This series of filmed concerts is an initiative of the House of European History together with the events and cultural agency Edificio. 

This event is possible thanks to the cooperation with eQuama and Vraiment Vraiment.
