Biography

The Orchestre International du Vetex started up in february 2004. Two professional Flemish (Belgian Dutch-speaking) musicians, Ruben Deprez and Michaël De Schrijver, gathered volunteers in the deprived neighbourhood of Venning-Veemarkt in Kortrijk (Belgium) to create a festive brassband for the yearly Spanish ‘Fiesta Mestiza’ in the old building of the knitting factory Vetex. Next to the locals of Kortrijk, they also found musicians in the french-speaking part of Belgium, Wallonia, ánd across the French border in Lille. The international orchestre of the Vetex was created and was proud to be able to make music within such a big social and cultural mixture of people and backgrounds.

From the first concert on at the Fiesta Mestiza, the Orchestre International du Vetex stole the hearts of many people. They were invited to other festivals, events, neighbourhood parties…in Flanders, Wallonia and France. Until today they played at more than 60 events like Dranouter folkfestival, Cactusfestival, La Noche… They even went of for 10 days to the south of France during the summer of 2005. All these gigs encouraged the feeling of friendship between the band members and led to a sound more compact and professional after summer.
