The Belgian National Orchestra, resident of the Centre for Fine Arts
The Henry Leboeuf Hall in the Centre for Fine Arts is still impressive and ultramodern after 85 years, but the secret is its peerless acoustics. Not only can the audience pick out every detail of a concert, but the musicians can hear themselves play, which makes for a better sound. As the Centre for Fine Arts' resident orchestra, the Belgian National Orchestra is privileged. While it performs many concerts in the superb Henry Leboeuf Hall, it also gets to rehearse there. And the orchestra's involvement in the Centre for Fine Arts' programming leads to a fruitful exchange with BOZAR.
