This exhibition shows to the general public knowledge the results of the research by Peter François on Servais, which revealed a lot of new historical data.
The exhibited material comes mainly from the collection of the Zuidwestbrabants Museum in Halle, with loans from the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, the Royal Library of Belgium, town archives of Halle, the archives of the Royal Harmony Saint Cecilia Halle and from many other archives from all over the world.
A captivating event for all citizens of Halle, music lovers, cellists and musicologists.
