"From Creation to Emotion" - A unique tour to the Workshop Chris Maene in Ruiselede
Each company tour also includes a guided tour of the Chris Maene Workshop and is also concluded with a short but very unique concert: for half an hour, the listener can not only make an accessible journey through music history, but also through piano history. After all, each musical work is played on a different piano from history, from harpsichord, over pianoforte to the contemporary grand piano.
The company tours are designed for groups of 20 to 60 people and always take place on a weekday, from 6 to 10 p.m. Due to their popularity, early reservations are recommended. This can be done via the request form at the bottom of this page, and we will contact you as soon as possible to make further arrangements and set a definite date.
