Taxi Flagey

Brussels Philharmonic presents new web series

This season, Brussels Philharmonic invites a number of big names in the Belgian music landscape, and highlights them with the brand new web series ‘Taxi Flagey’. The audience is granted an unconventional insight into the artists’ lives as a musician through first hand stories and impressions that made them to who they are today.

Each episode Vincent Verelst steps into his classic Saab 900 and drives the artist to a rehearsel with Brussels Philharmonic. During the ride to Flagey’s Studio 4, the person behind the musician is unravelled. With topics ranging from music and childhood memories, to cars and Spotify playlists.

Over the course of the season, 6 episodes showcase the different artists performing with Brussels Philharmonic. Common denominator: the city of Brussels.
