Biography

Composer and conductor Kurt Bikkembergs was born in Hasselt in 1963. After graduating in
music teaching, composition and choral and orchestral conducting at the Lemmens Institute in Louvain, he persued his training in international master classes in Belgium and Austria given by, among others, Robert Sund (Sweden) and Timothy Brown (UK) for choral conducting, and Heinz Kratochwil (Austria) for composition.

He was choir master at the Flemish Opera (2002-2008), Kapellmeister at the Brussels Cathedral of Saints Michael & Gudule (2002-2013) and choir master/artistic director of the EuroChor-AGEC (2007-2010). He is currently choir master and professor choral conducting and composition at LUCA-ARTS campus Lemmens Institute in Leuven, artistic director of the Capella di Voce and of the Dutch Student Chamber Choir and a guest conductor of the Flemish Radio Choir. He is an active member of Europa Cantat and of the International Festival for the Youth in Neerpelt.

As a composer he strives to renew vocal, in particular religious music, by adding personal
experiences without neglecting tradition. His compositions include all kinds of choir music,
chamber and ballet music, three oratorios and a couple of cantatas, but also orchestral works. At his leisure, he sometimes spends time as a freelance composer, conductor,member of a jury, and even singer, which led to successful commissions by several festivals in Belgium (Maasmechelen, Neerpelt, Tongeren, Brussels, Antwerp, Gent, Harelbeke, Kortrijk, Watou, Hasselt , Leuven, Heist op-den-Berg...) and abroad, in Germany (Bottrop, Saarbrücken, Halle, Mainz, Bonn, Limburg, Irsee), Holland (Dordrecht, Bussem, Amstelveen, Den Haag, Utrecht, Den Bosch, Breda, Arnhem, Eindhoven), France (Menton, Nantes & Angers, Châteauroux), the United Kingdom (Oxford), Spain (Barcelona), Poland (Poznan), Belarus (Minsk), Hungary (Pomaz), Serbia (Nis), Slovakia (Bratislava) and Croatia (Split).
