You could describe Lucas Cortoos (1992°) as a ‘jack of all trades’, but he prefers to be called an ‘artistic platypus’. After he finished his Master of cello at the LUCA School of Arts – Campus Lemmens, he decided it was time to pursue a second economically worthless degree. In June 2019 he completed his Master in vocal performance with the highest distinction at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp.
He is a member of the extra choir at La Monnaie in Brussels, but he regularly gives concerts as a soloist as well. In 2018 he has won the public prize and special prize ‘Inga Kalna’ for young promising talent at the International Vocal Competition Alida Vane in Latvia.
He works as a cello teacher at the music academy of Alsemberg. In his spare time he sometimes creates an own music-theatre performance.
