About the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra
Created in September 2002 by Clare Roberts and Roger Bausier, BPO found a residence in Théâtre Saint-Michel in Brussels, thanks to its Manager Antonio Vilardi ; it worked there for nine well filled seasons, but from november 2011 on it produces its concerts in the Royal Conservatoire of Brussels.
Its aim is to provide young conservatoire graduates with an opportunity to put their musical training into practice by playing in a permanent, full-sized symphony orchestra, and thus enhance their chances of becoming professional musicians.
