We will be increasing the positions on the Legato Board in 2019 from 3 up to a maximum of 7. We are not obliged to have 7 board members, but are very interested to hear from people who would be interested in serving on the board.

Legato Choirs membership is very diverse, and we hope to reflect this in the Board also. If you, or any of your choir members are interested in serving on the Legato Board, please let us know by sending an email to board@legato-choirs.com. We ask that you think about the roles and if you have any specialist skills in any of these areas. If you have any questions please contact the email above.

If you are interested to run for the new board but can’t attend the meeting please send us by e-mail board@legato-choirs.com with a short description and a confirmation that you are accepting the ballot in case of your successful election.

Please register online for the meeting here on our website.

We recommend the following hotel: Hôtel Marivaux, Boulevard Adolphe Maxlaan 98, B-1000 Brussels. There are a few numbers of private accommodation available. Please use the online registration form for booking.


Please let us know also (by email or in the registration form) if you are not sending a representative to the meeting. You can nominate delegates of other choirs to vote on your behalf. But have in mind that every representative can’t hold more than two votes and have to show a mandate at the beginning of the meeting.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Brussels.

Your Legato Board Julie Loriaux, Dominik K. Jakob and Martin Gerrits
