Jun 20, 2016, 08:43 AM

Wichita Kansas native Keith Tillotson is one of the driving forces behind a Mozart summer festival in Brussels. After nearly 20 years in Brussels he is ready to add to the Brussels summer festival season in a permanent way. He tells us how all this came about and what we can experience at this new festival. Midsummer Mozartiade presents Mozart’s music at several of Brussels’ Royal Quarter heritage sites with a selection of exceptionally talented young artists. There are three venues for three different programs: The opera Le Nozze di Figaro will be performed in the Théatre Royal du Parc, which dates from Mozart's time, as does the Salon de Lorraine of the Cercle Gaulois where recitals of themed pieces of Mozart's work will be held. And finally there will be free concerts in the bandshell in the Royal Park. www.mozartiade.brussels
