In the first half of 2016 the Netherlands are President of the Council of the European Union. During this presidency, the Netherlands will focus on key issues such as migration, combating terrorism and promoting growth and jobs. On Friday January 22 the opening concert took place at the art center BOZAR in Brussels.
His Majesty King Willem-Alexander and Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands attended the concert along with Their Majesties King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium.
The concert was performed by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the direction of the Swedish conductor Herbert Blomstedt. The promotion platform LM Flower Fashion was approached to decorate the Dutch flowers for the royal suite, the official reception and on the podium. In the floral styling, we find – amongst others – beautiful roses, vanda, phalenopses and orchids.
