Due to the current Covid-19 mesures this concert can’t take place.

During the quiet corona period in 2020, Joris Wouters built a brand new cello. On February 18, 2021, the instrument will be sold at an auction, together with various other art pieces and concerts. The proceeds will go to ArtistsUnited vzw to support musicians that were affected by the Covid-19 measures and also to the music academy in Mosoul (Irak).

Roel Dieltiens, one of Belgium’s leading cellists, is the ambassador of the project. On January 30, 2021, Roel Dieltiens will play the new cello during a charity concert in the Basilica of Halle. He will play – of course – music by Servais and some other 19th century virtuosos. Paul Heyman will perform the second cello suite of Bach and Amy Norrington will play the third suite of Benjamin Britten.  The gain of the concert will go to the Cello for Charity project.

Tickets cost 25 euros and can be ordered through the Servais Society (e-mail or 0499 33 51 51). Reservation is necessary.
