Welcome!

Allow me to introduce myself.

I am a huge fan of people, music and history.

My main interest (far from being an exclusive one) is the comic opera repertoire. Most of my research at the Antwerp Conservatoire and Ghent Orpheus Institute revolves around this wonderful yet undervalued repertoire, leading to new critical editions.

The productions of Volksopera, an Antwerp based company, are the direct result of this same interest. The company's goal is to bring this repertoire back to the forefront and in the process make people happy!

Furthermore, as a cellist mainly, I'm a fixed member of the HERMES ensemble, a contemporary music collective. 

Apart from being a conductor, a cellist and a researcher, I thoroughly enjoy writing arrangements or transcriptions and making new orchestrations, to provide our wonderful musical world with high quality musical editions.
