The European Historic Houses Association has started its partnership with Le Dimore del Quartetto in 2017.

The idea is that an owner of a historic house opens its doors to young talented musicians for a week of rehearsal in exchange for a private concert held in the house. The backbone of the initiative is to gather owners, musicians and the public in historic houses – thus reassuring their role as patrons of the arts.

We held our first European concert was organized within the framework of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage, on May 17 in the Castle of Grand Bigard, nearby Brussels. The Quartetto Noûs performed the Ode to Joy, the European anthem, as a contribution to Europa Nostra’s Ode2Joy challenge.
