Ensemble Emanon cherishes versatility and a multidisciplinary approach: contemporary music in combination with dance, music theatre, the visual arts and literature. While searching for crossover projects, Emanon also attempts to bring new work by Flemish composers, sometimes combined with the most outstanding samples of international chamber music. The core of Emanon consists of 18 excellent musicians who, conducted with great commitment by Raf De Keninck, vouch for a powerful group performance. Because of its unusual composition – double wind quintet, string quintet, guitar, percussion and piano - Emanon is a unique ensemble that plays its role in Flanders and abroad with passionate conviction. Emanon also organizes a composition contest every two years with a view to sustaining new talent.

The ensemble did not survive 2013.
