Masterpiece: Dating the artist 2018-2019

Audience and performers look each other deep in the eyes

Something beautiful grew in Concertgebouw Brugge… Some twenty music enthusiasts (lovers) and musicians from the Nadar Ensemble got to know each other, over the course of a few months. There were real couples made, that chatted about all sorts. About music, but also about how each experiences a concert. Do you wear your best suit when going to a concert or not, and why?

The project Dating the artist delivered enlightening insights, about how musicians and the audience experience a live concert.

On 30 May 2019, after the performance of Vox Angeli, interested parties joined for an aftertalk. The daters and moderator Kaat Haest were happy to share their experiences with anyone who wanted to hear.

Dating the artist is a co-production from Musica, Impulse Centre for Music and Concertgebouw Bruges.
