The church organ

Fabien Moulaert was born in Liège (Begium) in 1985. From the age of 9, he developed an interest in music and started learning to play the organ with Pierre Matot. At the age of 18, passion turned into profession when he auditioned for and was accepted to the Royal Conservatory of Music in Liège where he studied both the organ and the trombone.

In 2009, he earned his master’s degree with great distinction in organ performance having studied with Anne Froidebise. This was followed by a degree in music education and a bachelor’s degree in modern trombone performance with Alain Pire. His passion for early music then took him to Musikhochschule in Cologne where he was accepted into Wim Becu’s class and obtained a master’s degree in baroque trombone performance.

The complement of the trombone to the organ in Fabien’s musical career has greatly enriched his playing on both instruments, as well as his interpretation and understanding of music from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Fabien regularly performs on both the baroque trombone and the organ. He is active with various ensembles such as Oltremontano (Dir. Wim Becu), Cappella Mediterranea (Dir. Leonardo Garcia Alarcon), Capella Cracoviensis (Dir. Jan Tomas Adamus) and Huelgas Ensemble (Dir. Paul van Nevel).

Since 2017, he has been an organist in Kelmis, Hergenrath and since 2019 in the convent Kloster Heidberg in Eupen, Eastbelgium.
