The direct connection between the students and the general public, Luke runs the booking agency for the classical department. The agency was set up in order to provide people with an official means of hiring the students for external events, therefore giving the students an opportunity to gain performance experience and earn next to their studies.
A familiar face at the conservatoire, Luke followed the bachelor and master programmes here, studying classical solo singing with Frans Kokkelmans. During this time, he already showed an enthusiasm for the behind the scenes work related to his field. In 2012, together with fellow singing students, Luke founded The Opera Company, a non-profit organisation that provided the singing department with extra masterclasses and performance opportunities outside of the curriculum. Luke has also been production leader of the opera projects since 2015. Such an organisational bug has lead Luke to this current position at the conservatoire.
