This Friday 20.01.2017 in Gent, don’t miss out the first concert and exhibition of the Bridges of Art Festival, a series of free events bringing together lyrical singing with other forms of art – dance, visual arts, poetry or circus – in an unusual setting.

Contemporary Voices & Design, the festival’s first event will see 4 singers and 1 pianist perform contemporary creations by French composer Nicolas Bacri. Visual artist Sandra Keutgens will also be presenting some of her abstract paintings. The event will take place in a piano shop.
