Welcome to the weekend! Care for some beautiful jazz or world music? Or visiting the digital student fair? We've got you covered with the best tips. The weekend is yours!
1. Hear morning jazz with Harvest Group
What: Blend of modern jazz and folk
Where: Neimënster, 28 Rue Münster, 2160 Luxembourg
When: Sunday, 15 November at 11 am - free entry, but reservation required
Guillaume Vierset, leader of the Harvest Group, is looking for new sounds, new horizons, new textures. Inspired by a trip to the Western America, the group presents "Nacimiento Road", the group's second album with clear influences of folk music. Vierset defines his music as "modern jazz in contemporary folk". An incredibly heartwarming sound. Apéro Jazz is the best place to discover your next favourite artist, on a cosy Sunday morning down in the Grund.
2. Visit the digital student fair
What: University info and studying assistance
Where: Online from home, via this link
When: Friday, 13 November
It's a strange time to graduate and go off to university, but informing yourself about potential study programmes or universities is always a good idea. Even now during the pandemic, the famous Luxembourg study fair has moved online, where you can virtually move around the large expo hall and connect to the different stands. Quite refreshing from having to wander hours through the thick air of exposition halls, maybe?
3. Take a tour through Mudam
What: Ask the guide anything
Where: Mudam, 3 Park Drai Eechelen, 1499 Luxembourg
When: Saturday, 14 November and Sunday, 15 November between 10 am - 6 pm, info here
Every Saturday and Sunday between 10 am - 6 pm the art educators of Mudam greet you for a guided tour through the museum's programme. They are often easily recognisable thanks to their ASK ME t-shirt, and that exactly is the initiative behind this spontaneous discussion: just ask them about anything you have on your mind! Whether it's art, architecture, the museum, its exhibitions, or any personal thoughts you may want to share on these topics.
4. Listen to the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra
What: Compositions by Gabrieli and Haydn
Where: Philharmonie Luxembourg, 1 Place de l'Europe, 1499 Luxembourg
When: Friday, 13 November at 6 pm and 8 pm - info & tickets here
The Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Markus Stenz, will be performing two exciting sets this Friday evening. The compositions of Haydn and Gabrieli are on the musical menu. The musical works of Gabrieli mirror the transition from late Renaissance to the early Baroque period. Let's hope no chandeliers fall down during the performance of Haydn's piece, though, as this historically happened during his own symphony premiere in 1791. Wups!

What: Will Bond save the earth?

What: Extraordinary blend of musical styles
