B'Rock Orchestra

B'Rock Orchestra

B'Rock Orchestra was set up in Ghent in 2005 on the basis of an urge for renewal and rejuvenation in the world of Early Music. Our musicians distinguish themselves by their open mind and flexibility of repertoire and playing style.

B'Rock is known for a bold and innovative programme policy with early and contemporary music. We focus especially on giving first performances of new music. Early music in combination with theatre, visual art and/or video also form part of the orchestra's DNA.

We do not have one fixed conductor, but regularly engages prominent guest conductors and soloists such as René Jacobs, Ivor Bolton, Andreas Spering, Alexander Melnikov, Dmitry Sinkovsky, Bejun Mehta and many others.

B'Rock is regularly invited at major concert halls and festivals in Europe such as the Theater an der Wien, the Philharmonie in Paris, Bozar Music, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the BBC Proms, the Holland Festival, the Klarafestival, De Munt/La Monnaie, deSingel, the Concertgebouw Brugge, the Kölner Philharmonie, L'Auditori Barcelona, the Wiener Festwochen, the Ruhrtriennale and the Mozartwoche Salzburg.

B'Rock has developed structural partnerships with deSingel international arts campus in Antwerp and the Opera de Rouen in France.

In 2018, B'Rock Orchestra travelled to Hong Kong and Beijing. Later this year, we plan an American tour with Rosas, the dance company of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.

In January 2019, we debut in the Opera of Paris together with René Jacobs and Romeo Castellucci. In the season 2019-2020, we plan to tour to Japan and South-America.
