About the hall

Antwerp Symphony Orchestra

The Queen Elisabeth Hall is home to the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, the symphony orchestra of Flanders. Its concerts, recordings and rehearsals take place in our hall. Two thousand square metres spread over four floors house a rehearsal room, administrative and logistical services for twenty people, about one hundred musicians, three VIP boxes, a cafeteria and six soundproof rehearsal rooms.

The Antwerp Symphony Orchestra is a prominent art institution of the Flemish Community and an ambassador of Antwerp. The presence of this top orchestra reinforces the elegant appearance of the hall and also provides interesting combination possibilities for congress organisers and companies.

Conducted by chief conductor Elim Chan and honorary conductor Philippe Herreweghe, the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra moves and inspires as large an audience as possible with concert experiences of the highest level. Each season, it plays more than 40 concerts in the Queen Elisabeth Hall where the audience can enjoy the music and the setting in the best possible conditions.
