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.
On Saturday 30 November 2019 Fair Saturday took place, a global cultural movement with a social impact. During this event, Muziekcentrum De Bijloke, Flanders Symphony Orchestra and Mais Quelle Chanson organized an interactive benefit concert for De Broederij, an open meeting place on the Standaertsite in Ledeberg. Children and teenagers introduced the audience to their stimulation project through singing, philosophy and music.
