Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen

Countdown to the SOV Conducting Masterclass

Elias Peter Brown, Aleksandra Melaniuk and Kevin Hendrickx: these three conductors will participate in the SOV Conducting Masterclass. This is already the third edition of the international masterclass for young conductors. A new feature of this edition is that the conductors will not only study Ludwig van Beethoven but also contemporary classical repertoire.

Master and apprentice, side by side

Together with Kristiina Poska, chief conductor of Flanders Symphony Orchestra, the candidates will study the 6th Symphony of Ludwig van Beethoven. In partnership with SPECTRA (ensemble for new music) and artistic leader Filip Rathé, the participants  will explore Flemish contemporary music for ensemble.

Public finale

As a grand finale to the masterclasses, the three candidates will take place in front of the orchestra in a public concert in Muziekcentrum De Bijloke Ghent. Don't forget to reserve your free ticket and join us!

You will also be able to follow the closing concert via a livestream on Facebook and watch it again afterwards on the website.
