The Belgian symphony orchestras are our best musical ambassadors. Based in the brand new Queen Elizabeth Hall and with the internationally respected Philippe Herreweghe as principal conductor the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra is highly esteemed throughout the world. Emblematic of our country, the musical identity of the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège lies somewhere between the German and French traditions, and with its varied programme, the Brussels Philharmonic is symbolic of the diversity of our nation.
