Short description

With its sixty musicians, the Symphony Orchestra Flanders is the smallest of Belgium's major orchestras. Its repertoire ranges from classicism to contemporary music. The programmes of the Symphony Orchestra Flanders are notable for their great diversity and originality. Apart from the great symphonic repertoire, the orchestra also brings little-known works to the attention of the audience, particularly of the nineteenth and twentieth century. The orchestra also pursues an active commission policy, contributing to the accomplishment and the development of a contemporary repertoire. Every year one Flemish composer is commissioned to write a composition. The Symphony Orchestra Flanders has a number of operating bases throughout Flanders, where it gives a series of concerts every season: Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent. Chief conductor of the orchestra is Seikyo Kim. David Angus is its honorary conductor.
