The long-dilapidated building of the Brussels Conservatory of Music will be completely renovated starting in the summer of 2024. Recently, concerts were held in the conservatory’s hall with buckets on the stage collecting the dripping water from the leaking roof.

The building, built between 1872 and 1876 by architect Jean-Pierre Cluysenaar on the rue de Régence, will be renovated and expanded at a cost of 75 million euros. In addition to the renovation of the main concert hall with its Cavaillé-Coll organ, a new chamber music hall with 150 seats and a practice room will be built. The conservatory is scheduled to reopen in 2029.
