Zomer van Sint-Pieter 2018

Two months of summer full of exquisite lunch concerts in the historical heart of Leuven, that is still the successful recipe behind the Zomer van Sint-Pieter festival.

This seventeenth edition will feature both the usual repertoire as well as new discoveries. Along with Opus 3 – the thriving force behind the Midis-Minimes festival in Brussels – 30CC provides a choice selection of star performers from all over the world, such as Naaman Sluchin, Piet Kuijken, Lore Binon, Malibran Kwartet, BachPlus and many more.

Besides the usual theme focuses on piano (17 - 20 July) and string quartets (31 July - 3 August) the programme also makes regular sidesteps to folk, world, chanson and early music. You can discover the full programme below.
