Music

Music is a huge part of my life. Over the last 10 years I have taken part in a large variety of musical activities, concerts, and choirs. In July 2017 I took part in the European Choir Games in Riga, Latvia with the Antwerp University Choir. I was also enrolled in a two-year electronic music course at the Antwerp Royal Conservatory, taught by David Baeck and Jorrit Tamminga.

I am currently a member of the choir ‘Zoveel Herz’.
