International Young Artist’s Presentation 2016

The International Young Artist’s Presentation (IYAP) is a coaching and presentation format for young talented musicians or ensembles playing historical instruments or taking on historical sources. We challenge musicians as well as ensembles to present an innovative and original programme. We encourage experimentation with presentation formats and creative approaches.


Coaching sessions – led by Peter Van Heyghen – are one of the most essential elements of the International Young Artist’s Presentation. We provide feedback on the concept and approach from very early on in the process, and later the artists receive musical coaching from international experts. After coaching, the ensembles perform at historical locations in Antwerp during the Laus Polyphoniae festival. Many Belgian and international organizers are present at these concerts and at the networking event that closes the IYAP.

The selected ensembles will be promoted by the IYAP organizers. They will be honoured with the title “IYAP Selected Promising Ensemble 2016”.
