Earlier we had already had Thomas Vanderveken venturing into a very difficult piano concerto, and news anchor Hanne Decoutere giving her best as a prima ballerina. Stefaan Degand can now be added to that list. In the coming period, he will be trained by the young conductor Pascal Van Os, with the ultimate goal of mastering a symphony orchestra. He also completely immerses himself in the works of Johannes Brahms. He speaks to internationally renowned specialists and major conductors such as Jaap van Zuyden. He also makes a trip to the small village in Austria where the composer completed his Magnus Opus in 1885.

With this special rehearsal, he sees Degan’s childhood dream come true. For even in his younger years he would stand with a conductor’s baton on the coffee table at home, pretending to be an accomplished conductor.
