Royal Symphonic Band of the Belgian Guides
Since its foundation in 1832 as the King's private music chapel, the identity of the Royal Symphonic Band of the Belgian Guides stands upon the following pillars:
- The structure of a large wind orchestra complemented by a unique cavalry trumpet corps.
- The classical repertoire arises from a unique patrimony of works specifically composed or adapted for this orchestra.
- And finally a succession of prestigious conductors.
These pillars enable the orchestra and its Trumpet Corps to perform all their tasks according to the highest quality criteria.
The musical richness of the Royal Symphonic Band of the Belgian Guides is that of a large brass band and a cavalry trumpet corps of international renown.
Twice a year we welcome the Guides in the Concert Hall of the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.
