Under the baton of Principal Conductor Philippe Herreweghe and Honorary Conductor Edo de Waart, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic wants to reach a large and diverse audience through top-level concert experiences. Alongside its regular concerts, the Philharmonic attaches great value to developing educational and social projects, offering children, youngsters, and people with different social backgrounds the opportunity to get acquainted with the symphony orchestra from close quarters.
The orchestra has been a guest at some major foreign concert halls: the Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna (AT), the Festspielhaus in Salzburg (AT), the Amsterdam Concertgebouw (NL), the Suntory Hall and the Bunka Kaikan Hall in Tokyo (JP), the Philharmonie of Cologne and Munich (DE), the Palace of Art in Budapest (HU) and the National Grand Theatre of Beijing (CN). It collaborates with classical music labels and also curates its own label, focusing on the main orchestral repertoire, Belgian composers and contemporary music. The Royal Flemish Philharmonic is based in the new Queen Elisabeth Hall in Antwerp.
