On day three of the Quartzfestival, we head into the city.
There is lots and lots on the programme!
From 13:00, you will be continuously bombarded with music. Four heritage gems of the city of Sint-Truiden will be the setting for four special performances. You can buy one ticket for all four concerts or separate tickets for each individual concert. The ‘zwarte zusters’ collective will be let loose in the Abdijtoren, you can attend a concert – riding! – in a Hummer limo, ‘eat a story’ in the Existentiële Snackbar of Francine Marie Ten Brummelhuis, and much more.
And no, we haven’t forgotten our youngest festival-goers. Musica will be performing for kids aged 0 to 5. But mums, dads, grandmas and granddads will definitely also really enjoy this!

Fragments from Missa Homo Sacer

Timo Tembuyser in collaboration with Charlotte Dommershausen, Loulou Hameleers, Petra Ball & Laurens Mannaerts
‘A musical and three-dimensional landscape in which the wandering human being searches for connection and unity, salvation and ecstasy.’ This is how young Belgian composer and performer Timo Tembuyser describes his Missa Homo Sacer.

14:00 - Sint-Maartenkerk

'Slagwerk’ by Mardulier & Deprez with cellist Benjamin Glorieux

Michiel Deprez, Ruben Mardulier & Benjamin Glorieux
Michiel Deprez and Ruben Mardulier are trained jugglers and acro dancers and have built a reputation with their hilarious, banal post-internet art. In ‘Slagwerk’, they have musicians play music to the heartbeat of the performers. The musician doing the honours at Quartz is cellist Benjamin Glorieux.
