Coaches

Leaders and soloists at the Brussels Philharmonic, the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra of Opera Ballet Vlaanderen will be selecting and coaching the musicians of Youth Orchestra Flanders.

Registration criteria

Youth Orchestra Flanders has set itself the goal of facilitating the connection between the educational world and the professional field. The auditions are meant for students of the Belgian conservatories (regardless of their nationality or level). Talented Belgian musicians who are studying elsewhere (e.g. abroad) are also welcome to the (live) auditions (age range: 15-26 years (incl.)).

Evaluation

The evaluation will be carried out by the coaches of Youth Orchestra Flanders. If the student will be receiving academic credit for participating in the project, these credits will be granted by the conservatory based on the individual evaluation form that is provided by the coordinators of Youth Orchestra Flanders to the direction of the conservatory in question. For credits students should apply independently at their institution of education and preferably inform the orchestra’s coordinator.
