“Relaxing music in the middle of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Luc Vanlaere gives a couple of free concerts to the moslty tourist public. The concerts are given in a beautiful small hall situated in the Saint John's Hospital (now transformed in a museum and a pharmacy museum + a Picasso exhibition). The room is litted with candles and the music, played on different harps (classical, Irish + an assortment of other instruments) is soothing, relaxing. For the tired tourist this is an excellent way to relax for an hour.
Luc plays and sings mostly his own compositions.
For the interested, he also sells 3 CDs of his music.

“A memorable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We went to the early evening performance and found it a delightful 40 minutes - had not really heard a harp before in such a small room. Wonderfully relaxing. The other instruments he plays are also fascinating. We bought one of his CD's and found the music just as good at home! Give it a go and enjoy!

“You have to visit this, very nice music....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Thx Lux, it was a nice mini concert with beautifull Harp-music.
If you visit Brugge and you like music, you have to vist the miniconcert.
It is no-classical music, but he plays his own composities, without use of any kind of elelctronic instruments or equipment.

“Luc Vanalere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stumbled on this free concert and were glad of sitting down for a while after walking round the town. We were treated to an excellent exhibition of playing the "harp" and other similar stringed instruments and chimes over a short period of time. Each composition was the creation of personal experience and was well delivered using various instruments to create different sounds. At the end Luc was happy to take questions and explain the instruments on sage and asked for those who wanted to make a donation so that he can continue to present his music free at the point of access to as wide as possible audience.
