"When I conduct I think like a composer. When I compose I think like a conductor. Both identities complement each other and make a musician"
Leonard Evers (Heerlen, 1985) is a composer and conductor. After completing a bachelor in Comparative Literature at Leiden University, he graduated with honours in Composition and Arranging at Codarts Conservatory, Rotterdam.
Leonard’s music represents elements of jazz, world music and contemporary music. His literary background makes that he is specifically passionate about writing for theatre.
As a conductor Leonard is a curious ‘musician amongst musicians’, thriving on improvised, classical and contemporary music, pursuing direct, non-conformistic communication with the audience.
