A Creative, Adventurous, Socially engaged and Cultural Organisation.
Welcome to Casco Phil!

Casco Phil was founded in 2008 - under its previous name Belgische Kamerfilharmonie – on the initiative of composer and conductor Benjamin Haemhouts. The core consists of about 39 musicians but is expanded or reduced depending on the project.

Casco Phil wishes to reinterpret the concept of ‘orchestra’: at the heart of our activities is the artistic idea. The structure around this idea is adaptable and serves this idea. By breaking open the traditional orchestral structure we force ourselves to seek out new creative boundaries. Casco Phil distinguishes itself by creating daring and visionary projects and by experimenting in the broadest sense of the word, across all art forms.
Casco sees itself as a House of Music: our house offers concerts, workshops and projects with social commitment and is a springboard for young talented composers and soloists.

The orchestra performs on Belgian stages as well as international stages such as Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam.
During its 6 years of existence, the orchestra has developed a solid reputation, cooperating with international soloists such as Liza Ferschtman, Boris Giltburg, Roeland Hendrikx, Jeroen Berwaerts, David Cohen, Roel Dieltiens, ... and guest conductors such as Hannes Krämer.
