About us

‘Antwerp Philharmonic Orchestra’ is the name of the orchestra that is a fixture for almost 30 years at ‘Night of the Proms’.
Since the early 90’, the orchestra for ‘Night of the Proms’ has been carefully ‘handpicked’, to compose each year a group of talented and highly motivated musicians.  This approach has proven to work during well over 1.000 concerts and tv-shows, numerous tours :  flawlessly turning a Tchaikovsky part to be followed by a James Brown classic, and back from Seal to Beethoven requires an outstanding mastering of each instrument, as well as the willingness to perform every composition, whether a lavish symphony or a popular radio hit with all due respect and savoir-faire.
Meanwhile, it is being ensured that young musicians are invited to develop concert and tour experience.  The APO regularly plays in the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg and Poland, and has collaborated with world stars, such as Celine Dion, Lionel Richie, Charles Aznavour and Johnny Haliday.  Taki Concordia alumna Alexandra Arrieche, born in Brazil, is the musical director of the APO.
