Terra Nova research Collective Antwerpen

Terra Nova is a musical research collective based in Antwerp.
The ensemble seeks out interesting unknown or forgotten music and breathes new life into it on the concert platform. These works are presented in the concert programme alongside more familiar works of the western musical repertoire. At a Terra Nova concert the audience has the chance to hear a unique musical discovery as well as a familiar masterpiece.
