On January 29th, the secondary school choir and orchestra went to the Berlaymont to perform on the occasion of the New Year’s reception.
They received a warm welcome from EEB1 alumnus and EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, whom they met with after the performance.
In an inspirational speech, Mrs. von der Leyen talks about her fond memories at EEB1 and what drives us forward as Europeans, before ceding the spotlight to the choir and orchestra for a performance of Ode to Joy.
