AMUZ is an international music centre, hosting cultural, educational and research activities. The concert programme of AMUZ is inspired by the criteria of Historically Informed Performance: on the basis of a historically justified approach, music from all periods, styles and cultures is presented to a wide audience in a creative, re-invigorating and accessible way. Often music also engages in a dialogue with the other arts. AMUZ achieves this aim in a historic monument – the former church of St Augustine – which is equipped with all the technology of a modern concert hall and unsurpassed acoustics to boot. AMUZ integrates other historical buildings in the city of Antwerp as venues during the Laus Polyphoniae festival.
