Coaching

Audition Training: August 10 until 22, 2020

This Summer, the coaches of Youth Orchestra Flanders – leaders and soloists of the Brussels Philharmonic, Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and Opera Ballet Vlaanderen – engage to teach individual coaching sessions focusing on orchestra repertoire. One session lasts 1,5 hour and takes place in the studios of the Brussels Philharmonic (Belvedèrestraat 27 in Elsene).
For new musicians this is the ideal opportunity to get prepared for the Youth Orchestra Flanders’ auditions this coming October. For orchestra members the coaching creates a chance to delve into orchestra’s audition repertoire generally requested at professional auditions.

For Whom?

The coaching is open to members and non-members of Youth Orchestra Flanders.

The admission requirements are:
– Age: max. 26 years old
