The International Young Artist's Presentation (IYAP) gives young vocal and instrumental ensembles a boost on the international music scene.

Due to the corona crisis, IYAP could not take place in Antwerp during Laus Polyphoniae 2020. Therefore, coaches Peter Van Heyghen and Raquel Andueza met the ensembles digitally to get acquainted and to prepare for their participation during Laus Polyphoniae 2021.  

We are hopeful that the circumstances will allow the ensembles to be coached intensively for three days this summer. On 23, 24 and 25 August, they will present themselves via live streamings to the (festival) audience and an international feedback committee of experts and programmers within the early music scene.  

The jury selected six promising young ensembles from no fewer than 33 entries from all corners of Europe. The following ensembles will participate:

More information about the live streamings can be found on the website of the festival Laus Polyphoniae 2021.

The call for the 2022 edition will be launched in November.
