SOV Composers' Academy

Trajectory for young musicians

Every year, three students of Belgian conservatories are offered the opportunity to work together with the orchestra for several months. During workshops, work sessions and orchestral rehearsals, their compositions are moulded and carefully considered. The final result is presented to the audience as the Flanders Symphony Orchestra includes the compositions in its concert programme.

Talent development

The Flanders Symphony Orchestra devotes every attention to both young talent and talent development. New courses provide additional support and guidance. Promising conductors, composers, soloists and orchestral musicians are inspired, motivated and enthused at the start of their careers. Together with the young generation, we are building the future!
