About us

From its home port of Bruges, string orchestra BRYGGEN boldly sets course for the North, along the routes of the Hanseatic League, all the way to Scandinavia and the Baltic. In search of new sounds and connections with cultures all around the world. With unified forces, now moving against the current, then harmoniously bathing in the tranquillity of immeasurably deep fjords.

BRYGGEN wins the Ultima for Music!

From the jury report:
BRYGGEN’s special quality lies in the thoughtful way the orchestra links innovation to the great tradition of classical music. BRYGGEN is an example of an ensemble pushing boundaries and expanding the social content of an art form.
