Nuit des Choeurs is a one-of-a-kind event hosted annually in the ruins of the abbey of Villers-la-Ville, a charming municipality in Walloon-Brabant. The only choir festival in Belgium, this promenade concert offers two nights of entertainment, with six superb professional choirs singing throughout the evening. This year, the event takes place on 25 and 26 August. “This is the only time when the beautiful abbey opens at night and is lit up,” enthuses director Benoît Meurens. “The idea began in 2000 when I was asked to create an event in the abbey ruins using light and beautiful choral music.” Six different professional choirs perform four times throughout the evening.
