Spinto tenor from Belgium. Studied percussion first and started his professional musical eductaion at de Kunsthumaniora in Antwerp. Studied percussion and singing at The Royal conservatory of Antwerp. Later private coaching with Zeger Vandersteene. Voice colour is considered dark and a rather big voice but with excellent projection and exceptionally high range. Sings mainly Verdi and Puccini but also operetta productions ( roles suited for a havier voice). Because of his ability to use the upper tenor range ( D and Eb are possible) also some bel canto Tenor parts like I Puritani. projects in the near future include Radames in a Dutch &nbspAida production: a role wich he sang before and Don Jose in open air shows in the north of France. He sang numerous concert as a soloist with orchestras and operachoruses. Carmina Burana is very often performed but mainly operagala's. Before solowork Ingmar worked for 7 seasons as choir member at the flemish opera in Antwerp and Ghent. And 1 season at La Monnaie/ De Munt in Brussels. He also often did last minute replacements like the famous Tilman Knabe Samson et Dalila production in Cologne. More video's  ( the duets from Aida, etc..)  can easily be found on youtube.
