International Young Artist's Presentation
The International Young Artist's Presentation (IYAP) is a coaching and presentation format for young talented ensembles playing historical instruments or taking on historical sources. We challenge ensembles to present an innovative and original programme. We encourage experimentation with presentation formats and creative approaches.
The coaching sessions - led by Peter Van Heyghen and Raquel Andueza - are an essential part of IYAP. After the coaching, the ensembles will perform at historical locations in Antwerp during the festival Laus Polyphoniae. During these concerts a lot of Belgian and international organizers will be present. They will give the ensembles tips for their future careers.
Afterwards, the selected ensembles will be promoted by the IYAP-organizers and will be honoured with the title "IYAP Selected Promising Ensemble 2017".
Until 1 March 2017 ensembles worldwide can sign up.
