The Brussels Philharmonic—the Orchestra of Flanders was established in 1935 under the aegis of the public broadcasting network. In 1998 it began its independent existence as the Vlaams Radio Orkest (Flemish Radio Orchestra). From 2008 onwards its new name Brussels Philharmonic—the Orchestra of Flanders has highlighted its close ties both to its home city, Brussels, and to public broadcasting. The orchestra is like a musical chameleon in the way it combines the most diverse styles for a wide audience. In each programme the orchestra works with soloists and guest conductors who enrich the orchestra with their own vision and experience. The programme of the Brussels Philharmonic—the Orchestra of Flanders is centred on a number of series offered in Brussels, both at Flagey, where the ensemble also rehearses, and at the Centre for Fine Arts. In addition, the orchestra is also at home in Flanders, appearing both at major venues and in important cultural centres. The orchestra has also attained international renown, as a result of which it enjoys a base in Paris (Cité de la musique and Salle Pleyel) and gives regular concerts in the Netherlands (the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, De Doelen in Rotterdam). The Brussels Philharmonic—the Orchestra of Flanders is a permanent partner of the Festival of Flanders, Ars Musica and the Flanders International Film Festival, Ghent, and works regularly with the Royal Ballet of Flanders. The ties with public broadcasting remain strong: the orchestra works closely with radio and television for both recordings and events. The Brussels Philharmonic—the Orchestra of Flanders is an institution of the Flemish Community and receives funds from the National Lottery. Its media partners are Klara, De Morgen and Roularta.
