Festival Resonances

Festival Resonances is an International Chamber Music Festival that takes place every year in Belgium. Founded in 2010, Festival Resonances gathers around twenty top-class musicians from around the globe each year and brings them to the beautiful Chateau de Halloy near Ciney.
The musicians spend a week at the chateau in intense musical discussion, hidden from their usual fast-track lives and the major concert halls. These rehearsals lead to a series of concerts given at the weekend starting on Thursday evening in the barn next to the chateau.
