Sunny retirement for Frans Kokkelmans
15 June 2022
Today we said goodbye to Frans Kokkelmans. We would like to thank him for all his years of work at Conservatorium Maastricht!
Meet people from around the globe! Conservatorium Maastricht is the most international conservatory in Europe. 75% of our students are international and many projects, masterclasses, and programmes are without borders.
We challenge you! Get out of your comfort zone, spark your imagination, and develop your own individual sound. The ability to see beyond your own boundaries, to let go and then regain control. How do you want to move?
We work towards one common goal: to enable our students to develop into excellent musicians whose energy and creativity offer a valuable contribution to music and society on an international level.
The city's bustling student life mainly takes place in the historic centre. Where many cultural events and activities take place throughout the year. You are a stone's throw away from Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and France.
The Conservatorium Maastricht team is characterised by collectivity and passion. We feel it is important to learn from each other, excel ourselves and add value. Our inspiring teaching staff have more than earned their spurs in the international world of music. Students, teaching staff, support staff and management are in constant dialogue. They inspire each other, follow developments and jointly ensure their implementation.
Maastricht. Built on Roman foundations. Divided by the Maas river. Surrounded by green rolling hills. Famous for its cobbled streets, vibrant nightlife and rich cultural scene. Not just in the city itself, but also just across the border, as Maastricht lies in the triangle formed by the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Luxembourg and France are within driving distance. Cities like Amsterdam, Brussels, Liege, Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf, with their countless musical venues and other cultural institutions, are all a few hours away. The international appeal of the city of Maastricht is enhanced by the constant influx of students from around the globe. They are drawn to Conservatorium Maastricht, its parent organisation Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and to Maastricht University.
