It is sometimes difficult to stop and look back at what has been.

I have been conducting the Flemish Radio Choir for so long! We have literally read kilometres of music, tonnes of double-sharps, composers of great renown or noble unknowns, never-before-heard works and magnificent masterpieces.

All this requires hours and hours of hard work, monumental efforts, challenges won and triumphs enjoyed, tiring journeys – suitcase in hand, off the aeroplane, onto a train, to lush concert halls or intimate chapels …

My God, so many moments, so many wonderful memories full of emotion, while working for you!

2017-2018 was just such a season, full of intense joy and deeply moving moments, topped off in April with Mendelssohn’s Second Symphony.

But, brace yourselves: in this season we'll be shaking you up some more! Because the Flemish Radio Choir is guaranteed to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

Long live happiness!
