The Christmas Concert 2021, December 3, at 20h
To enter in the spirit of Christmas feasts, let's rejoin together to enjoy music. The RMIW have the pleasure to invite you again to our annual Christmas concert in the event hall La Sucrerie, in Wavre.
The concert includes the choir of the Children of the Avesnois and the famous ensemble 'I Virtuosi de Waterloo', featuring Marc Grauwels, renowned flute soloist and loyal professor in our Master Classes, as well as Joelle Strauss and Fabian Fiorini.
The Master classes
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the City of Wavre and the Province of Walloon Brabant have informed us that they are freezing the provision of premises until June 30, 2021, to allow, among other things, vaccinations to reduce the risks and calm the situation. his measure deprives us of the possibility of organizing Master Classes at Easter, but we believe that classes can resume in the fall. so, we will welcome you during the All Saints' Day or fall holidays.
Master Classes 2021 of November are cancelled
Registrations were starting to come in on a regular basis. Unfortunately, this was without taking into consideration the consequences of the new anti-Covid measures taken by the federal and regional authorities in our Country and in particular the introduction of the COVID SAFE TICKET from 10/15/21.
These provisions do not allow us to organize master classes under acceptable conditions, among other reasons because many students would not be allowed to access to public facilities, including classrooms in the music school, or because nationals of certain countries must stay quarantined.
With deep regrets and disappointment, we are therefore forced to cancel the 2021 master classes once again.
Master Classes 2022 - from 2022, April 2 to 9.
Our will and our enthusiasm to pursue the objectives of the Rencontres musicales remains intact. Consequently, if all goes well, the next master classes will resume their normal course. The Team is happy to share the plan that in 2022, the Master Classes will be held again in the Spring Break, like usually.
To be precise, in 2022, Easter falls on April 17. The MC will be held in the first week of the break, 2022, from April 2 to 9.
Registrations will start in December 2021.
25th anniversary of the RMIW
The RMIWs were created in 1997 by a Wavrian music lover, Madame Laure MERCIER, who wanted to promote young musical talents.
To guarantee the success of her project, Laure has surrounded herself with an artistic advisor, a renowned pianist, the soloist Christian Beldi, and a business manager, Mr. Christian de Cannière, who has unfortunately just passed away.
In 2021, we will therefore exist for 25 years!
Apart from 2020, every year we have held Master Classes and organized concerts.
2020 has been a year in which our activities have been muzzled, but in 2021, we invite you to celebrate our 25th anniversary together.
