Project Leader Jazz, Opera, Classical Backstage & Booking Agency Classical

Luke Mitchell

Classical en Jazz

The direct connection between the students and the general public, Luke runs the booking agency for the classical department. The agency was set up in order to provide people with an official means of hiring the students for external events, therefore giving the students an opportunity to gain performance experience and earn next to their studies.

A familiar face at Conservatorium Maastricht, Luke successfully completed Bachelor and Master programmes in classical solo singing with Frans Kokkelmans. During this time, he showed an enthusiasm for working behind the scenes in music. In 2012, together with fellow singing students, Luke founded The Opera Company: a non-profit organisation that provided the singing department with extra masterclasses and performance opportunities outside of the curriculum. Luke has also been production leader of the opera projects since 2015. Such an organisational bug has led Luke to his current position at the conservatorium.
