The Academic is an indie/rock band from Mullingar, Ireland. The band formed when the members were in their early teens and preform many live shows in order to build a bigger following. The member are Craig Fitzgerald on lead vocals/guitar, Dean Gavin (Drums) and brothers Stephen (Bass) and Matt Murtagh (Lead Guitar). Most of 2013 for the band consisted on writing a debut EP expected in 2015. Their debut album Tales from the Backseat was released on Jan 12th 2018.
The MAS has a multi-faceted collection. Pretty much anything you dare to think of is waiting in one of our storage depots to be shown to the public. The curators of the MAS challenge ‘MAS In Jonge Handen' ('MAS in Young Hands’) to delve into these objects and build their own idiosyncratic exhibition. With this bold take-over of the collection, the young people redefine what a museum is all about, according to their own views.
They follow their instincts, choosing to display the rich group of items relating to animals from the collection. Ever heard of Inuit garments made of whale gut, or a pair of pigeons that carried important messages between members of the Antwerp resistance? You can look forward to amusing legends, museum anecdotes and weird combinations that you wouldn’t normally see in a museum. Don’t let the youngsters put you off: this exhibition is made by young people, but it’s a must-see for everyone.
Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, performed by our very own renowned Belgian master musicians, pianist Julien Libeer, violinist Lorenzo Gatto and cellist Camille Thomas. The programme also radiates the optimism and vitality of Schubert’s Great Symphony. With such giants on the stage you need a steady beat, which is why we welcome Estonian conductor Kristiina Poska. She will be the first woman to ever lead our orchestra!
