Read all the history

In the splendour of a musical court

Envious of the success of musical events at the Court of Versailles, the Belgian nobility decided to imagine a musical court in the future Belgium. The Society Concert Noble dates back to 1785, a period in which the archduchess Maria-Christina of Austria and her husband Albert of Saxe-Teschen established a community responsible for social events reserved for members of the nobility in the Royal Park.
Almost a century later, King Leopold II decided to build a dedicated monument.

Greatness and inspiration

King Leopold II assigned the mission to architect Henri Beyaert, who expressed all his great architectural talent. He created a suite of rooms arranged in a crescendo concept – larger and brighter the further you enter, up to an apotheosis: the impressive 400m2  Ballroom with its 15m high ceilings. The Concert Noble opened its doors with pomp in 1873.

A waltz with culture and social grace

Imagine those balls choreographed with elegance and fluidity under enormous chandeliers, with their chassé-croisé dances and swirling waltzes. In tandem with those sumptuous balls, Concert Noble also hosted concerts, recitals and theatrical pieces. It was the very heart of culture and fashionable life.

Shadows & lights

A painful episode followed in 1940-1945 when the Concert Noble was requisitioned by occupying forces as an “Offizierskasino” and left in a lamentable state. Thankfully, after the Concert Noble Company wilted in the 70’s, the building was listed as protected heritage in 1981. In 1982 it was purchased by Boerenbond insurance (KBC group) and the renovation was completed. Assigned to Edificio, the Concert Noble shines today with all its former pomp and ceremony.

Concert Noble hosts receptions for up to 750 guests and seated dinners for up to 550 in the magestic rooms and Ballroom, which are guaranteed to elevate your event to similar grandeur.
