As a young soprano, Yves Van Handenhove sang with the Petits Chanteurs in Dulci Jubilo at Sint-Niklaas. He graduated as a commercial engineer from the Catholic University of Louvain. After working as an economist for a few years, he decided to pursue a musical career. He followed a two-year singing course taught by Guy De Mey at the Antwerp Conservatory, followed by private lessons from Anne Cambier and Lucienne Van Deyck.

Later on, he became a freelance singer with several professional ensembles such as Graindelavoix led by Björn Schmelzer, Il Fondamento led by Paul Dombrecht, La Petite Bande led by Sigiswald Kuijken, Collegium Vocale led by Philippe Herreweghe and the Nederlandse Bachvereniging led by Jos Van Veldhoven.
