The Queen Elisabeth Competition is one of the most demanding and respected international competitions with unparalleled media coverage. Ever since its creation in 1937, it has established itself as a springboard for young violinists, pianists, singers, and cellists on the threshold of an international career. Every year in May, the competition is held in Brussels and is named after Queen Elisabeth of Belgium, violinist herself (1876โ€“1965).

For the finalists, one of the highlights of the Competition is their stay at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, which offers them an opportunity to spend a whole week studying.

Every year around 70 Belgian families open their doors wide to offer the candidates of the Competition a warm home during their participation. Not only is this support invaluable for the candidates, together with the host families they also create memories that last a lifetime.

The Piano Competition initially scheduled to be held in 2020, had to be postponed to May 2021. Due to COVID-19, the candidates prepared themselves in extremely difficult circumstances.

The Belgian press announced today that this yearโ€™s visit to the greenhouses will be both an indoor and outdoor experience. As a result of COVID-19 measures, the tour inside the greenhouses is shorter than usual but visitors can now enjoy a 1.2 mile walk through the gardens of the Royal Domain.

Between 1874 and 1876, the greenhouses were built in a pioneering design with metal and glass by Alphonse Balat, mentor of the famous art nouveau architect Victor Horta. Monumental both in beauty and size (270,000 square feet), the greenhouses house a rare collection of exotic flowers and plants.

T***s played on stages all over the world. International stars such as #quincyjones, #peggylee and #Sting lined up to work with him. He moved to the U.S. in 1952 and became a U.S. citizen in 1957. In 2006, Thielemans was honored by an all-star tribute concert for him at Carnegie Hall in New York. In 2009, he was awarded the highest U.S. honor that can be accorded to a jazz musician, the distinction of "Jazz Master," by The National Endowment for the Arts. In 2016, he died in Belgium at the age of 94. At his funeral, pianist #KennyWerner read a personal message from U.S. President #BarackObama for his widow, Huguette.
