Belgian National Orchestra to play inside metro station

An intimate classical music concert in a Brussels metro station is up for grabs for 50 lucky people later this month.

Public transport operator Stib has teamed up with the Belgian National Orchestra, which will perform Beethoven's 7th symphony on 29 August.

The venue has only been described as "a secret place on the Brussels metro network".

"We've done a lot with popular music," said a Stib spokesman. "We've already collaborated with Angèle and Zwangere Guy, but we now want to do something with classical music."

The Stib had previously organised a classical music concert by pianist Frank Braley inside a metro train.

Tickets will be given away in 25 pairs and the competition closes at midnight on 22 August.
