Louise Van Eygen, pupil of Yf Bourry at the Conservatory of Kortrijk, has been playing the oboe since she was eleven years old. She decided on this choice when trying out several instruments after a children’s concert. Louise singled out the oboe because the sound pleased her and she found the reed interesting. She was immediately in love as she could produce sounds on the spot. The oboe will keep accompanying her in the future; if she wants to make it her profession, she doesn’t know yet. But she’s got the talent, that much is clear: she participated at the Concours Bellan in Paris last month, where she won the third prize.
says Anouk Vandenbussche, who has played the violin since she was four years old, and oboe from the age of eight. The passion for oboe has only become stronger during the past eleven years.

She attends classes at the Conservatory in Kortrijk with Yf Bourry. Anouk wants to become an executive performer in an orchestra, as she likes playing in a team too. This was her contribution at the Concours de Bellan in Parijs earlier this month:
