CHORAL CONDUCTOR

 

bio

Michiel Haspeslagh (1982) is a young Belgian choral conductor and singer. He received his musical training in LUCA School of Arts in Leuven (BE) where in 2013 he obtained his Master's degree in singing (Lieve Jansen) and one year later a Master's degree in choral conducting under the tutelage of Erik Van Nevel. Michiel is now deepening his knowledge and skills by participating in conducting masterclasses with Daniel Reuss (Capella Amsterdam, NL), Hans Leenders (Studium Chorale, NL) and, most recently, with the Flemish Radio Choir (BE) and their chief conductor Hervé Niquet.

He is the conductor of Clari Cantus, Clari Cantores, Carmina Chamber Choir and Bruxell'A Cappella, four high level amateur choirs. The youth choir Clari Cantus won the prestigious 'Choir of the Year' competition in 2011 with Michiel conducting. This same choir also shared the stage with the Flemish Radio Choir in 2016 for a joint concert conducted by Eric Whitacre. 

In September 2017 Michiel received his first project as a conductor of the Flemish Radio Choir. Since then he is frequently asked as their choir repetiteur. 

 

As from 2018, Michiel will be regularly busy at the Landesakademie für die musizierende Jugend in Baden-Württemberg (DE) as a visiting lecturer for several artistic projects.

Michiel sings as a freelance tenor in professional ensembles such as the Orpheus Vokalensemble (DE), Studium Chorale (NL) and the Flemish Radio Choir. Most recently he joined Cappella Pratensis (NL), specialised in performing the Franco-Flemish polyphonic music from the original sources in mensural notation.
