The 2017 winners of the Fondation Michelle will be putting on a gala concert on Thursday 31 May 2018 at the auditorium of LALUX Assurances (Leudelange) from 19:00.

Since 2014, the Fonds culturel national (Focuna) has been managing the allocation of the Fondation Michelle, a foundation under the auspices of the Fondation de Luxembourg, by offering a series of scholarships for young, talented classical musicians.

The Fondation Michelle has so far helped 115 young musicians, 4 musicologists and 3 composers to perfect their skills or develop their career.

In order to give these laureates more visibility, Focuna, in collaboration with the Fondation de Luxembourg, has organised a gala concert scheduled for the end of next month. Performing will be Rodolphe Alma (composer), Núria Bonet (musicologist), Hy-Kang Dang (saxophonist), Miguel de Figueredo Gomes (violinist), Benjamin Kruithof (celloist), Isabelle Kruithof (violinist), Máté Sütő (pianist), Francesco Tristano (pianist) and Ensemble United Instruments of Lucilin.

Reservation for the concert is required before 24 May 2018 via email: or tel.: +352 247-88617.
