Flat Earth Society Orchestra

  • NTGent

With diverse 20th-century jazz traditions as their starting point, the fifteen-strong band Flat Earth Society Orchestra moves between different styles and genres from musical theatre to rock. The written page is only the start, and there’s always room for a contemporary sauce of playfulness and daring improvisation. FES is an idiosyncratic Belgian band known far beyond its home borders; an intelligent, effortlessly eccentric orchestra that sheds its skin, and scales new heights, time and time again—especially live. Unmissable!
