Music from dusk till dawn
Our pagan ancestors had some fine customs. Every year during midsummer night, they celebrated exuberantly through the summer solstice, the shortest night of the year. Time to breathe new life into this tradition. The Handelsbeurs provides a night full of intimate music, making sure the shortest night passes by slowly.
Giovanni Di Domenico's Echoism
When night falls, the concert hall comes alive. Everyone is looking for a place to lie down with mats and sleeping bags. Giovanni Di Domenico and his talented ensemble take over.
Get ready for a walk through an auditory landscape, propelled by persistent and elongated compositions. This deep sound flow guides you through all hours of the night.
And then the sun rises. Long tables with are ready for breakfast together, a new day beckons.

Livestreams via Sound of Ghent

We look beyond the classical concert registration, with creative collaborations between band and director.
