Enjoy a magical musical moment!

Abracadabra! It is just about the oldest magic spell and still sometimes in use as a joke. Beyond science, we find a world of magic and limitless imagination that continues to intrigue. VUBorkest ventures into this territory and finds mysterious, joyful and splashing sounds and colours! We will be further enchanted by the texts of Yoeri Lewijze and Ingrid Vanrutten. The concerts are sure to be a magical musical feast, with a special focus on the 50th anniversary of the VUB Scientific Support Fund.
