Leuven beKOORt 2024

Sunday, September 22 - 50 choirs - 22 locations

Fancy a singing Sunday? Welcome to Leuven beKOORt!

Sing, listen, watch, experience and stroll during the second edition of Leuven beKOORt.
We join forces with KOORUWEL again for a city full of choral sounds.

50 choirs will perform on 22 stages on one Sunday afternoon. They come from Leuven, Brabant, Flanders, Wallonia and the Netherlands. Between 1:30 pm and 5 pm, each choir will sing two 30-minute concerts on two different stages in the city centre. The stages are located within walking distance, between the ‘boarding stations’ town hall, Olevodroom and Damiaanplein.

As a closing event, all the choirs will gather on the Grote Markt at 5:30 pm. Together, they will sing a new composition written for Leuven beKOORt by Pieter Nevejans, the conductor of Kooruwel.

You can attend these 100 concerts free of charge. As a visitor, you can choose from very diverse styles and sounds: from Gregorian chant and classical over world music to pop and rock. Also discover surprising venues, inside and outside, in the Leuven city centre. Relaxing with a drink and eating a bite is also part of this polyphonic day!

Every two years, Leuven beKOORt opens the cultural season of 30CC.
The choir festival is thus a new tradition and is already planning its third edition in September 2026.

Welcome, see them sing.

Wanted: volunteers!

We are still looking for enthusiastic volunteers to make Leuven beKOORt a blissful singing Sunday.
