The mission of Musica Mundi is to develop the musical and human potential of young talents from all over the world. By putting these already highly gifted young talents in direct contact with other young talents from around the world, and with some of today’s greatest pedagogues and artists, the impact on their lives, in terms of development, stimulation and personal enrichment, will be immeasurable. Driven by this same philosophy, every summer for the last 18 years Musica Mundi has been holding an international chamber music course and festival for young musicians aged 10 to 18. Each year, the course is attended by some 70 participants from all corners of the world: 30 countries were represented in 2016. The vast majority of these talented young people have few or no financial resources; thanks to sponsors and patrons, they receive full scholarships which cover both their living expenses and their musical education.

The growing success of the course and the festival over these last 18 years, and numerous encounters with musicians from all over the world, have made the two founders of Musica Mundi, Hagit Hassid-Kerbel (pianist) and Leonid Kerbel (violinist), aware of the urgent need to set up a primary and secondary school for young musicians.

As far as the teaching agenda is concerned, the school intends to offer young musicians aged 10 to 18 the opportunity to simultaneously and harmoniously receive a general education and a professional musical education, both of high quality, irrespective of their financial situation. There are very few schools in the world offering an education comparable to that which Musica Mundi intends to provide. Most of these schools are in Eastern Europe or Asia. In Central and Western Europe there are no such schools, with the exception of Great Britain. At the Musica Mundi concert at the Centre of Fine Arts of Brussels on the 2nd May 2011, Maxim Vengerov announced that he was to serve as ambassador for the school project!

The Musica Mundi School will be created on the historical and spiritual site of the “Abbaye de Fichermont” - part of the listed and fully preserved areas of the battlefield of Waterloo. Thanks to an exceptional collaboration with the Archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels, the «Musica Mundi School» will create in Fichermont its international primary and secondary music school with boarding house. The whole historic domain of Fichermont will be preserved with respect to the site of this former convent, including the use of the chapel, and will find a beautiful new assignment in the service of young talents and music.

The school, with English as its vehicular language, will offer a complete general education from the 5th primary year and up to the 6th secondary year. The school will follow the Cambridge International Examinations program and qualifications, and will deliver a high school diploma certified by this program. A boarding school will welcome the young talents who will arrive from all over the world.

Professional music education will be provided by all the artists who are already part of the «Musica Mundi Family» - Maxim Vengerov, the school’s ambassador, Ivry Gitlis, Mischa Maisky, Menahem Pressler, Ronald Van Spaendonck, Catherine Michel and many others ... Instrumental teachers for all orchestral instruments and piano, master pedagogues and artists in residence will be present at the school regularly. Young talents will be accepted on the basis of an audition and according to their talent only. Scholarships will be offered to those in need.

"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music"
