The Bruocsella Symphony Orchestra is an international group of amateur, professional, ex-professional and student musicians.
It was formed in 1996 by a group of friends who met to play chamber music and wished to expand their musical horizons. It rapidly expanded to become a full symphony orchestra under its first conductor Alain BAUDHUIN. In September 2002 Jan STEENBRUGGE took over as conductor. In April 2013, David Miller was selected as the new Musical Director and Conductor.
The BSO was set up as a non-profit organisation (ASBL/VZW) soon after with the aim of giving concerts for the benefit of charitable causes. The orchestra currently gives around 5 concerts per year and, mostly due to the turnover of the international community in Brussels, is constantly seeking new members, particularly string players.
Rehearsals are weekly on Sunday evenings.
