Welcome

Every month a beautiful Bach concert… That is what Minimes Cantat has to offer you! The programme usually features one or two cantatas by the great Johann Sebastian Bach himself but sometimes also works by other composers from the great Bach family or his contemporaries.

Come and listen to us and take a journey through J.S. Bach’s magnificent repertoire!

About us

Since October 1981, Minimes Cantat has performed one or two Bach cantatas every month to a large and appreciative audience in central Brussels.

The choir and orchestra are made up of accomplished amateur singers and experienced instrumentalists from Europe and the rest of the world.

The ensemble is led by Artistic Director Julius Stenzel, with a number of rotating and guest conductors taking the baton for performances.

Concert venue

The concerts take place

  • on Sundays (third or fourth Sunday of the month)
  • at 17.00, duration approximately one hour
  • in the St-Jacob-Op-de-Koudenberg church at 1000 Brussels
  • except during the summer months.


The church is located at 1 Place Royale, at the top of Mont des Arts. Tram 92 & 93 – Bus 27 & 95: Place Royale stop; Metro: Park station; Train: Brussels-Central

The admission to the concert is free. The concerts are not part of the Sunday mass celebration.
