About YOF

Youth Orchestra Flanders is the Flemish symphonic youth orchestra that was launched in 2019 in partnership with Brussels Philharmonic, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra of Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, three of the major Flemish arts institutions.

With support from the Flemish government, Youth Orchestra Flanders offers the up-and-coming generation of young talents (15-26 years old) a flying start in the professional orchestral circuit. Youth Orchestra Flanders is a unique partnership between the major Flemish orchestras, the four conservatories of Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent and Leuven and the concert halls of Concertgebouw Brugge, deSingel, Flagey and De Bijloke.

Youth Orchestra Flanders has in recent years shared the stage with Stéphane Denève, Edwin Outwater, Camille Thomas, Lorenzo Gatto and in future projects conductors Yi-Chen Lin, Anu Tali and Nuno Coelho will work with Sylvia Huang and Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort.
