Short Is The Night
Music from dusk till dawn
Our pagan ancestors had some fine customs. Every year in june, they celebrated exuberantly during midsummer night, through the summer solstice, the shortest night of the year.
Time to breathe new life into this tradition. Handelsbeurs Concert Hall provides a night full of intimate music, making sure the shortest night passes by slowly.
