The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra is the symphony orchestra of Flanders and is based in the new Queen Elisabeth Hall in Antwerp. Under the baton of Chief Conductor Elim Chan (from the 2019-2020 season) and Principal Guest Conductor Philippe Herreweghe the orchestra wants to move and inspire a large and diverse audience through top-level concert experiences.
The new Queen Elisabeth Hall is a cultural flagship anchored in the heart of Antwerp. Its classical concert hall is blessed with exceptional acoustics. The venue is home to the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and the place to be for orchestral music in Belgium.
The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra is a cultural ambassador for Flanders. International tours raise the orchestra’s profile while also boosting the image of Flanders and Antwerp abroad. Concerts in the Netherlands and Germany are therefore a regular part of our schedule. We also go on annual tours further afield.
