Royal Symphonic Band of the Belgian Guides

The Royal Band of the Belgian Guides regiment consists of a Symphonic Band composed of 84 strictly selected artists and a Trumpeter Corps of 19 first class musicians. Due to its exceptional qualities, the band has fascinated many composers, from Berlioz to Stravinsky, as well as large audiences in Belgium and abroad, since its foundation in 1832. In 1831, this excellent symphonic band’s principal vocation has always been the defense of Belgian music, especially original Belgian wind band music.  It pursues this objective by presenting numerous concerts in Belgium and abroad as well as radio concerts and recordings. Today, famous foreign composers such as Roger Boutry and Derek Bourgeois and Belgian composers such as Frederic Devreese and François Glorieux call on the Symphonic Band of the Belgian Guides to create new compositions and recordings.
