The Flagey Academy YOUTH CHOIRS, founded in September 2021, are made up of Brussels youngsters aged between 10 and 20. The participants, both boys and girls, are selected on the basis of motivation and recruited from primary schools in Brussels that reflect the city's social, cultural and linguistic diversity.
The project aims to bring singers from across the city together though choral singing, and to foster in them a love of music and a sense of purpose. More than just a choir, Flagey Academy is a long-term project, and consists of training programmes at preparatory and advanced levels. Throughout the learning process, the team of musicians and music pedagogues will focus on each young person’s artistic, emotional and intellectual development. The young singers will not only learn how to use their voice and to sing musically, singing together with others will also help build their self-confidence, and will teach them about commitment and respect for other cultures and individuals.
