Short description

We are not a museum, but a platform for living music


As former radio symphony orchestra that has been in existence since 1935, the Brussels Philharmonic cherishes its rich history. At the same time, it welcomes the opportunities that lie in the future, and joins tradition to a taste for renewal. The home venue is the Flagey building in Brussels. Thanks to the virtuosity of the musicians, VRO is a flexible orchestra with a highly diverse repertoire: from the romantic to the contemporary, from conceptual music to film music, from the great classics to unexpected crossovers. Offering the chance to discover a wide range of old and new forms of ‘classical’ music, putting the orchestra forward both literally and figuratively, in a variety of environments, making links to other art forms: these are but a few of the types of bridges which the orchestra is actively engaged in building. The ties with public broadcasting remain strong: the orchestra works closely with radio and television. In addition, the Brussels Philharmonic participates in the network, which makes various concerts available via live streaming. The digital culture channel Exqi also carries a selection of its concerts, accompanied by background reports.

Conductor: Michel Tabachnik

Intendant: Gunther Broucke
