The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra (formerly the Royal Flemish Philharmonic) is based in the new Queen Elisabeth Hall in Antwerp. Under the baton of principal guest conductor Philippe Herreweghe and honorary conductor Edo de Waart the orchestra aims to move and inspire a large and diverse audience through top-level concert experiences.
The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra occupies a unique position in Flanders, but also makes regular tours through Europe and Asia. The orchestra has performed in venues such as the Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Salzburg Festspielhaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall and Bunka Kaikan Hall, the Cologne Philharmonie and the National Grand Theatre of Beijing.
Alongside its regular concerts, the orchestra attaches great value to developing educational and social projects, offering children, youngsters and people with different social backgrounds the opportunity to become acquainted with the symphony orchestra.
