Composer : Maarten Van Ingelgem

Maarten Van Ingelgem (°1976) studied piano with Jan Michiels (Brussels Conservatory) and composition by Wim Henderickx (Antwerp Conservatory). He is an accompanist as well as a piano teacher at the music academies of Dilbeek and Ninove. Maarten is the coductor of the chamber choir for contemporary music De 2de Adem in Ghent, and he sings with Aquarius that also concentrates on contemporary vocal music. He is frequently invited to consolidate basses or to conduct other choirs such as the Brussels Chamber Choir and the Flemish Radio Choir.

As a composer he wrote among others a chamber opera for the Youth Opera Festival in Utrecht and a string-quartet by order of the Transit Festival in Louvain. The piano-concerft for which he was awarded the 2005 award for new music of the province of East-Flanders, has meanwhile been performed in St.-Petersubrg. His choral works are internationally renowned such as KUSS, the 2008 compulsory song in Neerpelt, and the South-African drinking-song, sung by the Estonian National MEn's Choir conducted by Timo Nuoranne.

In 2008 Sabam awarded him with the Golden Poppy for choral composition; the award intends to pat young creating artistis on the back for their achievements, their devotion and their willingness.

For the 60th EMY Maarten Van Ingelgem has composed "Laus Stultitiae", the compulsory song for the F-category, the pennant category for the mixed voice youth choirs.
