March 2019 marks a milestone in the rich history of Brussels Philharmonic. 84 years after it's founding, the orchestra went on tour to North America. The winning formula of the orchestra and music director Stéphane Denève – a mix of 21st century music, French composers and a world class soloist – was warmly welcomed by audience and press alike. Not only did the concerts in Ottawa, Florida and New York showcase Belgium, they also brought together the local Belgian communities. Keystone and absolute highlight was the Brussels Philharmonic New York debut at the legendary Carnegie Hall, where the orchestra was treated to a standing ovation.
