Johan Duijck is a multi-talented musician, a renowned pianist, conductor and composer working mainly in Belgium, England and Spain. He has been conducting the Gents Madrigaalkoor since 1973, and he has become internationally renowned through conducting the Flemish Radio Choir, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chorus (London), the World Youth Choir and as a guest-conductor of the most important chamber and radio choirs throughout Europe and Latin America.

Hilde Coppé (soprano) is a well known international soloist, frequently asked to sing baroque, classical, romantic and contemporary music.

The young Catalan baritone Josep-Ramon Olivé Soler has been able to work with great conductors and has participated in renowned European Festivals. Currently he is studying for a Master’s degree at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with professor Rudolf Piernay.

Roger Walkington (narrator) sang for László Heltay in Brighton Festival Chorus. Under László and later Johan Duijck, he sang for over 20 years with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chorus, singing, recording and touring with them under Sir Neville Marriner.

The Flemish Radio Choir ("Vlaams RadioKoor") was founded in 1937 by the Belgian public broadcaster of the day. Today, the choir has grown into an exceptionally high-quality ensemble that is attracting attention both at home and abroad. They rehearse and frequently perform in the celebrated Flagey building in Brussels.

The Gents Madrigaalkoor, based in Ghent, Belgium, aims to captivate the public with interesting choral music of a high standard incorporating both the romantic and contemporary repertoire, including some of the great classics. Over the years the choir has enjoyed considerable acclaim, both at home and abroad.

The children's choir Clari Cantuli was established by Ria Vanwing, who has now conducted the choir for over 40 years. She enjoys combining singing and educating young people. Her approach enabled Clari Cantuli to sing with the best ensembles.

Peter Thomas (organ) is an esteemed organist, who is to be heard in various CD's as well as productions of radio station Klara. He is also an active promotor of organ music with the general public.

The Soloists of Brussels Philharmonic perform in various combinations of instruments, playing a broad repertoire, from Baroque to contemporary music, conceptual music and film music, the classics and unexpected cross-overs.
