VZW Artiestenfonds (Artists' Trust Non-Profit Organisation):


For more than 60 consecutive years the 11h30 mass Sundays and feast day in St. Charles Borromeo's church is celebrated with classical music. So the artists' masses are accepted and visited by many, also non-parishioners and foreigners. The aim of founder and art lover Benoit Roose was to support artists during the war years and he himself was supported by patron and chair-person Marie-Elisabeth Belpaire and her Majesty Queen Elisabeth. Since the end of the 1960's his wife Nelly Roose Verachtert (mezzo-soprano) carried on his lifework with grand commitment and knew to this day how to bring people closer to God with music.till today o bring the human being closer to God with music.
