The orchestra was founded in 1935 as a studio ensemble of public broadcasting with the name of Groot Symfonie-Orkest. In 1998, it began its independent existence as the VRT Radio Orkest (Flemish Radio Orchestra). From 2008, the orchestra took the new name of the Brussels Philharmonic. Since 2005, the residence of the orchestra is Studio 4 of the renovated Place Flagey in Brussels. The orchestra also gives concerts in the BOZAR, Centre for Fine Arts. The orchestra also plays elsewhere in Flanders, in Bruges, Gent, Leuven, and Hasselt. The orchestra also performs as accompanying ensemble with the Royal Ballet of Flanders.

The orchestra's current chief conductor is Stéphane Denève, as of the 2015-2016 season.
