The Royal Flanders Philharmonic Orchestra was established in 1955 by a group of enthusiastic young musicians, their enterprise rewarded by subsidy from the Belgian government, from the province and from the city of Antwerp, where it is based. The orchestra embarked on an annual season of concerts, later adding to this a series of successful promenade concerts, while undertaking engagements throughout Belgium and in France, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Greece and the Netherlands.

In 1983 various changes in management and subsidy took place and the orchestra was enlarged to a full complement of 96 players. In this form it has assumed an important rôle in the Flemish community at home and has won distinction abroad, not least in the Linz Bruckner Festival, where its performances were enthusiastically received. The first conductor of the enlarged orchestra was the Bulgarian Emil Tchakarov and in May 1986 Günter Neuhold became the orchestra’s conductor.
