Royal Symphonic Wind Band Vooruit is 95 years old in 2017! We simply cannot let this pass unnoticed, so we're giving everything we've got to celebrate this milestone with all our musicians, sponsors and loyal as well as new fans. Nothing better than a unique gala concert, on Saturday 30 December 2017 in CC Het Spoor Harelbeke.

Our director Erik Desimpelaere and the entire orchestra is preparing a unique, musical festive evening on the penultimate day of the year, and will work together with none other than Yannick Van De Velde as soloist on piano. This young Femish musician, semi-finalist on the Queen Elisabeth Competition for Piano 2013 and well-loved guest on European top stages, is coming to Harelbeke!
