Music in Nieuw Gent

The music we make is a basic right for everyone. Flanders Symphonic Orchestra is socially committed and also looks at the world outside the concert hall! Under the name SOV-Express, our musicians go out and build bridges through music.

Music educational project

With ‘Het Leven is een Lied' Flanders Symphony Orchestra and Mais Quelle Chanson join their artistic forces for a music educational project in the schools of Nieuw Gent.

Starting from short stories and poetry the children create their own lyrics. Together with musicians of Flanders Symphony Orchestra they compose a melody to their self-written song. As icing on the cake they make an arrangement with the orchestra. The project ends with a public presentation.
