Then, about us. The board members of Collegium Vocale Young Friends were all members of the Masterclass organised by Collegium Vocale Gent during the Collegium Vocale Crete Senesi Festival in Tuscany, 2017. We have completely different backgrounds -business, sciences, literature, … – but we share
a passion for classical music and arts (and wine).



Why did we start Collegium Vocale Young Friends? We started it because we wanted to share the beauty of Collegium Vocale Gent’s music and classical music in general. Everyone should have a chance to get touched by the unique sound of Collegium Vocale Gent.

Furthermore, we want to inspire you with art and music! Through art and music we are able to reflect on ourselves and others. This reflection makes us a richer human being – it’s through reflection we get to know ourselves.

Finally, we dream of creating a warm community. Collegium Vocale Young Friends is a place where you meet friendly, enthusiastic people. A place you feel home – a home of art and music.

How does Collegium Vocale Young Friends function? Collegium Vocale Young Friends is part of Collegium Vocale Gent. We share and spread the qualities and visions of Collegium Vocale Gent. Classical music should be accessible for everyone – therefore we take away any possible barrier.

What are we going to do to reach our goals? We introduce you to the music by lectures. We take you to magnificent concerts. We organize inspiring meetings with interesting musicians, philosophers and conductors. We provide drinks and time to find new friends. We take you on adventure in Italy – go with us to the Crete Senesi Festival in August.
