Summer Project 2019

“Nothing is more rewarding for an experienced musician than nurturing the next generation! In collaboration with the master musicians of the Brussels Philharmonic and the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, and with the prestigious soloist Camille Thomas, we will explore in depth not only masterpieces of the repertoire, but also music of the 21st century. It is a delight to have a World Premiere by Jeroen D’hoe on the program, specially written for the occasion. With this outstanding initiative, supported by the Flemish government, the symphonic future of the region feels bright and promising!”
