We are family: Host families
Every year around 70 Belgian families open their doors wide to offer the candidates of the Queen Elisabeth Competition a warm home during their participation. Not only is this support invaluable for the candidates, together with the host families they also create memories that last a lifetime.
"Through all the competition events - from the excitement of the drawing of lots to determine performance order, the following reception when candidates and host families meet old friends and new, the days of contest-concerts, to the late evening announcement of who will progress to the next round - host families stand behind our candidates. It is intensely rewarding, sometimes excruciatingly stressful. It always feels worthwhile."
