Collegium Vocale Gent Academy
Philippe Herreweghe, conductor
Collegium Vocale Gent Academy is the new youth project of Collegium Vocale Gent. This project was set up to offer young musicians a perspective in this Corona era and help them find their way in the professional world. During a first intense week aimed at instrumentalists, the Academy offers the opportunity to work in an orchestra under the inspiring leadership of Philippe Herreweghe. The musicians are selected via an online audition.
In this Beethoven year, we take the famous Fifth Symphony as the starting point for an exciting four-day rehearsal process. If the situation allows it, we will conclude with a few concerts. The orchestra will be accompanied, supported and coached by professional musicians with years of experience in leading orchestras such as Collegium Vocale Gent, Concentus Musicus Wien, Orchestre des Champs Elysées or the Orchestre Révolutionaire et Romantique.
