Season 22-23
The new season is just around the corner! Let yourself be carried away by the sounds of Footprint, the protest songs of We Have a Dream, the stories of Night 352 and the exciting grooves of Two Places. In 2023, the BJO will perform together with Aka Moon for the first time, and we will pay tribute to Serge Gainsbourg, together with rising star Camille Bertault.
Take a look at the concert calendar
BJO in Utopia
On Sunday 18 September, the Brussels Jazz Orchestra kicks off the new season with a concert in Utopia, the library in Aalst. With Footprint we present a selection of our extensive repertoire, surrounded by an impressive collection of books. With this concert, the non profit organization De Luchtbrug waves goodbye to Peter Thomas, the outgoing director of the Academy for Performing Arts in Aalst.

Revisit Toots 100
Over the past few months, the Brussels Jazz Orchestra has paid tribute to jazz legend Toots Thielemans at various venues. The first in the series was the official anniversary concert on 29 April 2022 in Bozar, together with Philip Catherine (guitar), Tutu Puoane (vocals), Kenny Werner (piano) and Grégoire Maret (harmonica) which you can watch here. Thanks to Klara, you can also listen to the concert at Jazz Middelheim again.

Meet Stijn Declercq
"After day 1 with the BJO I was immediately sold and the Two Places project continues to hold a very special place in my musical heart."

Sound engineer Stijn talks about the secret behind a good monitor mix, the projects he works on and his first encounter with jazz.
