About Brussels Madrigal Singers

Formed in 1973, the Brussels Madrigal Singers (BMS) enjoy singing mainly unaccompanied music in a friendly atmosphere. The group has established a reputation for its wide and varying repertoire extending from the 15th century to the present day and covering both sacred and secular works. The group’s Musical Director from 1992 to 2018 was Julius Stenzel, previously cellist in the Orchestre Symphonique de la Radio-Television Belge de la Communauté Française (RTBF) and well-known in and around Brussels also as a chamber music and continuo player. Following his recent retirement from the function, he was succeeded by Gabriel Hollander, a gifted young Belgian musician.

About the Embassy of Ireland Book Club

The Embassy of Ireland Book Club was launched in November 2017 and we read books by contemporary Irish authors writing in English today, and we meet every 6 weeks. We alternate between male and female authors and meet at the Embassy to discuss the book. You can find more information about the Book Club here.

We hope that you’ll join us!
