Students of the Ghent Conservatory stand on the stage of De Bijloke Music Centre, and work side by side with the leaders of the Flanders Symphony Orchestra. By rehearsing two repertoire works, the students gain an insight into the functioning of an orchestra: the communication between conductor and members of the orchestra/concert master, the contact between stand leaders and their groups, and the relationship between the various players groups. The master class is concluded with a public presentation.
Also during the 2020-21 season we planned several masterclasses with public presentations.
First upcoming public concert: VR 21.05.2021 at 12h45 in MIRY Concert Hall Ghent in collaboration with the Royal Conservatory of Ghent
