Exciting times, this September 2020, I was admitted in the newly formed class of maestro Robin Engelen at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles.
Thinking of the aphorism by Winston Churchill, "Never waste a good crisis", I thought it would be a great opportunity to study under the guidance of an experienced conductor during this worldwide cultural pause. More information on maestro Robin Engelen via this link.
