After graduating from art school, Ann obtained the Laureate diplomas in violin, chamber music and music history at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven.
She was a permanent member of the Flanders Symphony Orchestra, Chapelle de Lorraine, salon orchestra Panache and performed as a freelance violinist in very diverse line-ups: from duo violin-piano, violin-organ, to string quartet, chamber orchestra, theater performances, proms concerts, opera.
In 2006, Ann founded the Drongens Chamber Orchestra “Cordae Lysis”, which has since grown into a respected semi-professional chamber orchestra in Flanders.
In June 2013 she graduated from the Lemmens Institute in Leuven with a Master's degree in Music with great distinction.
Her experience with very diverse conductors inspired her to increasingly take up the baton herself. She followed master classes in conducting at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven with Ivan Meylemans; private courses with Edmond Saveniers and Dirk Vermeulen. In 2017, Ann was invited as chief conductor of the new symphonic orchestra Musamis, a highly passionate group of amateur and professional musicians in Kortrijk. At the beginning of 2018, she founded the professional string orchestra Spumanti, where she gathered a number of Flemish top musicians to bring known and lesser-known gems for string players to the widest possible audience under her leadership. She is regularly invited as a conductor for productions with orchestra, choir and soloists.
Playing the violin and conducting: these remain two great, mutually fertilizing passions of Ann, in which she always aims to share her joy as a musician with the audience.
