About het Orkest Koninklijke Luchtmacht: Behind the military uniforms are 48 conservatoir-trained musicians. Some with a classical background, others from pop and jazz music. That's what makes the orchestra so unique! Top musicians from both genres come together to form the well-oiled machine that is Orkest Koninklijke Luchtmacht.
Orkest Koninklijke Luchtmacht has a rich history. While in the past their music made a difference on the battlefield, nowadays the music is used differently.
With their music, they tell the story of the Air Force/Army and connect our world with the world outside the airbases.
What characterizes them is the modern and contemporary sound. But traditions that ceremonially connect them with the Armed Forces are also part of their DNA.
Due to their surprising collaborations and diverse and innovative repertoire with a military touch, Orkest Koninklijke Luchtmacht is unique in the professional music world, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
