Royal Conservatoire of Liege

Royal Conservatoire of Liege

The Royal Conservatoire of Liège (RCL) (French Conservatoire royal de Liège, Dutch Koninklijk Conservatorium Luik) is one of four conservatories in the French Community of Belgium that offers higher education courses in music and theatre. Located at 29 Piercot Forgeur in the city of Liège, the school’s principal building was built in 1887 using a neoclassical design by architects Louis Boonen and Laurent Demany. Inside the building is a large concert hall, the Salle philharmonique de Liège, which has recently been entirely renovated. The hall is the major performance venue for the Orchestre Philharmonique de Liège.

Royal Conservatory of Brussels

Conservatoire Royal De Brussels

The Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles originally opened in 1813 as a singing school under the Napoleonic Empire in Bruxelles, and was subsequently a Royal School of Music, founded in 1826 by William I of the Netherlands, and the school has officially existed in its present form since 1832. As an insitution offering university-level education in music and theatre, the Conservatoire acquired its royal status, amongst other reasons, thanks to the international status of successive directors such as François-Joseph Fétis, François-Auguste Gevaert, Edgar Tinel or Joseph Jongen.

Royal Conservatory of Ghent

Royal Conservatory of Ghent

The Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK) and the Royal Conservatory constitute the school of arts of HOGENT and Howest. The school brings together talented and motivated students with outstanding educators, active artists, designers and theorists in art and design from all over the world. The mission statement of the school defines its main tasks: development of the arts, education and research in an international perspective.
The varied range of artistic disciplines in KASK & Conservatory, makes for reciprocally inspiring and relatively open training programs. As interdisciplinarity in the arts becomes ever more important, there is room for cross-fertilization in our training program. Also, students will be introduced to some of the numerous theoretical and artistic research projects our lecturers are engaged in.
Two of the KASK & Conservatory campuses are located at the epicenter of Ghent. Ghent can boast a reputation within the international art world and is traditionally very popular with students. Not only does this artistic climate form a fertile environment for KASK & Conservatory, our educational institution also actively participates in it with the organisation of exhibitions, concerts, festivals, lectures and film screenings, among other things.Campus Buda in Kortrijk was added in 2018.
