The Vlaams Radiokoor has always had a special place in its heart for contemporary music – and all the more so when it comes from our own homeland. Flemish music is in our DNA!
From its creation in 1937, the Radio Choir performed music by ‘our’ Flemish composers – and continues to do so today.
Together with ComAV, the Radio Choir issued a call last summer for new choral music by Flemish composers, the result of which was ‘Les Flandriens’: submissions came flowing in by seasoned composers as well as new talent. They were recorded in the studio and will now also be heard live in the concert hall. Flemish choral music is alive and kicking!
