Jeroen has special interest in historical performance practice. He was awarded the title Laureate of the Orpheus Institute with his dissertation “200 Years of the Belgian Horn School, a comprehensive study of the horn in Belgium, 1889-1960.” His doctoral research, “Brave Belgians of the Belle Époque,” focuses on the artistic aspects of the horn horn-playing tradition emerging from the Ghent Conservatory during that period.

Jeroen has performed and toured with l’Orchestre des Champs Elysées, Concerto Köln, Anima Eterna Brugge, and Il Giardino Armonico. He was principal horn of les Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble and of Insula Orchestra. He regularly performs with B’Rock Gent and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. He is a founding member of the Mengal Ensemble, which has released two CDs. He taught at music schools in Bruges and Tielt before taking up his current positions.
