Musical maestro ... in the metro
Metro and pre-metro stations are popular places for musicians looking for an audience. With Operation Beethoven, artists from all walks of life have the opportunity to demonstrate their talent in front of a jury of STIB employees, who have themselves undergone musical training. The key to these auditions is an accreditation allowing them to practise their art in the places indicated by a treble clef in the STIB stations.
Yohan was among those musicians who participated in the selections this year. In a podcast, he talks about his journey and what brought him to this audition.
About 50 musicians play daily in the STIB stations. In June 2023, the STIB plans to organise a new audition depending on the number of applications received.
