Leuvens Universitair Koor
The Leuven University Choir (L.U.K.) was founded in 1969 by several students of the University of Leuven. As a mixed concert choir and vibrant student association existing of approximately 80 students, the L.U.K has become an important part of university life in Leuven. The choir succeeds in combining an ever growing aspiration for high quality with a lot of enthusiasm, which is why, as a youthful choir, it continues to exude a special attraction. Since September 2019 the choir has been under the guidance of conductor Kevin Hendrickx

Kevin Hendrickx chosen as future conductor of the LUK
Posted at 28 Mar 2019, 2:24 p.m.
Starting next academic year, Kevin Hendrickx will take up his role as new conductor of the Leuven University Choir. In 2013 he graduated with high distinction from his Masters in choir conducting, followed by a degree in orchestra conducting in 2017. After his studies his main focus were orchestras, and he founded Continuo in Gent. Meanwhile he worked with several choirs and orchestras as a guest conductor. After a few years he is now ready to once again fully immerse himself in choir music, and we are looking forward to a great collaboration and the next chapter for the LUK!
