Transported from your Crystal ship to the center of Antwerp by luxury coach, you'll take your seat inside a concert hall that was once the monastery church of Augustine monks. Now the centerpiece of a music conservatory devoted to period authenticity, the building dates back to 1615 and combines a thrilling historical setting with the latest concert hall technology.

The 40-minute program for the evening includes a mix of orchestra-only songs and others where orchestra and opera soloist perform together. The compositions played span from historically well-known songs to modern movie music. 

Your string orchestra, lead violinist, and opera soloist for this enriching evening have built a considerable following within Belgium and have performed to accolades at festivals and concerts throughout Europe. 

As a memento of the event, hostesses in traditional Belgian dress will present each guest with a delicate origami tulip at the end of the concert.  Important Notes:
Weather in the Low Countries can change rapidly; it's wise to bring along an umbrella on rain coat for the short walk from coach to venue.
