Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel
Support of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel
Since the academic year 2008-2009, the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund has embarked on a partnership with the Music Chapel, by granting annual scholarships to five young musical talents. Inaugurated on July 11, 1939 in Waterloo, the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel is a public utility institution devoted to the education of exceptionally gifted musicians. Its mission consists in "promoting the training of musical talent, in particular by organising courses, competitions, concerts and conferences; by awarding prizes and grants, or, in short, by exploring all means to improve the material and spiritual well-being of the musicians". The institution annually accommodates nearly forty young musicians, including twenty or so in residence. These are trained by a corps of accomplished professors and masters of international renown. In pursuance of its aim to encourage the development of young Belgian and foreign talent, the InBev-Baillet Latour Fund will, for a period of 3 years from the academic year 2008-2009, award multiple annual grants for a total of ¤125,000 to young, exceptionally gifted musicians in order to allow them to follow excellent musical training at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel. The initiative highlights another project of high human value, this time in the field of music, born in Belgium but with an international reach, and oriented towards the future, development and education. A new way to celebrate our country's excellence at the global level. >>>links: To complete list of scholarship awardees Witness: Bernard de Launoit
