The orchestra is the only professional symphony orchestra in the south of the Netherlands as well as one of the largest in the country and seeks to connect with all its residents of North Brabant, Limburg and Zeeland. The South Netherlands Philharmonic achieves this through a diverse range of activities, such as large symphonic concerts with popular repertoire in our beautiful concert halls, new concert formulas in unexpected locations, film projects, ancient masterpieces as well as exciting world premieres. Our business events establish commercial connections with the region and the educational projects allow young people and school children to experience magical moments with music. From season 21-22  the South Netherlands Philharmonic will be conducted by chief conductor Duncan Ward (32) and is an orchestra for everyone: a vibrant community that performs at the highest level with inspired musicians and committed staff members. Under the direction of intendant Stefan Rosu, the South Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra is an orchestra that continuously pushes its boundaries in all aspects of its ambitions.
