Founded in 1995 under the name of Goeyvaerts Consort, since 2007 as Aquarius, the ensemble has expanded and today consists of 24 singers. Its vision is to embrace all forms of contemporary music in a global musical offering that rises above all categories and specialities. Its founder, Marc Michael De Smet, a fervent advocate of contemporary and Flemish music, is the ensemble's current conductor. Contemporary music is how it has always been and how the ensemble thinks it should always be: innovative, shocking and directive.
Aquarius sees the 21st century as an era in which irreversible evolutions will shake the arts landscape and in which its boundaries will be redrawn. An era in which all cultural expressions are permeated by each other, providing a dynamic the choir embraces.
