The pandemic has hit the Belgian music scene very hard. To support all the fantastic artists from Belgium, a Belgian Music Week was organized from February 8 until February 14. Over the years, we were very privileged to see several of those artists find their sound at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. We are honoured to promote their work through our Facebook and Instagram accounts this week.
Alumnus Hans Vercauteren talks about his journey and experiences at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp. He attained his master's degree in Composition in 2013 with Wim Henderickx and Luk van Hove. He also studied orchestral conducting with Koen Kessels and Ivo Venkov. For several years now he is a member of the Artistic Council of Music at the Conservatoire.
