Belgian composer, conductor, singer and music pedagogue. Connecting people of all ages through singing drives him, and it is the common thread throughout his work. Professionally, Hans seeks to balance teaching, composing, and performing, based on the conviction that these different skills complement each other. He writes compositions for many different and diverse line-ups but focuses on vocal music. Hans teaches music composition at STAP Roeselare, has several choirs under his direction and developed several educational projects for Concertgebouw Brugge. He is a double laureate in the European award for Choral Composers (2014 with Missa Brevis and 2020 with Sanctus Amor).
