All concert data are subject to change, depending on the health measures in force. Purchased tickets will remain valid on the new date.



Isabelle Chardon (violin), Sophie Hallynck (harp) and Christophe Delporte (accordion) are all three teachers at the Higher Institute for Music and Education in Namur (Imep) and form the trio Phalaena. Phalaena means “butterfly” and symbolizes lightness, grace and the subtle rebirth of nature.

The combination of the harp, the violin and the bayan (concert accordion) offers an alliance of eclectic sounds. The prejudice that the accordion is only part of the repertoire of popular music is refuted by this trio with a smile.

  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750): Allegro from Concerto for organ BWV 593
