BOENK! at work


With Oxygen, BOENK! and Brussels Experimental react on the call of UN Climate Change and BTHVN 2020 - an international initiative calling for action to reducing the effects of climate change. Central in the project is Beethoven's Pastorale, a work featuring the intens connection between man and nature. For the occasion composer Dick Van der Harst reworks this (Western) classical piece into a cross-over including etnic diverse music influences. Brussels youth orchestra BOENK! shares the believe that we must increase climate action to preserve sustainable life on earth. We owe it to ourselves, our children, our children’s children and the many generations of humans yet to come.
