BRUGES


Known as the Venice of the North, Bruges is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe! It was a justified motive that prompted UNESCO in 2000 to include the entire historical city centre on the World Heritage list. Walking along the maze of winding cobbled alleys and romantic canals, you imagine yourself to be in medieval times. The wealth of museums is a striking image of this city's stirring history. Bruges is also home to contemporary culture, such as the new Concert Hall, which is one of the most prominent music complexes in Flanders. Bruges is only 15 minutes by public transport from Zevenkerken.


Festival Day 5 Years IFSB


October 28th 2017 we had a fantastic and unforgettable celebration of our 5th anniversary. IFSB Juniors, IFSB young talent, IFSB flute choir, house pianist Stefan De Schepper, teaching staff Aldo Baerten, Blaz Snoj, Robert Pot, Peter Verhoyen and the ensemble Arco Baleno shared the stage at the beautiful Joseph Ryelandtzaal in Bruges.
