Jonny Heykens (1884–1945) was light music specialist, born in the Dutch town of Groningen. A violin pupil of Eugène Ysaÿe at the Brussels Conservatory, he played in various orchestras before founding his own orchestra in Groningen in 1914. Among his many light music compositions, it was above all his Ständchen (‘Serenade’) which won wide international success between the Wars.

Jonny Heykens (1884–1945), spécialiste de musique légère, naquit dans la ville hollandaise de Groningue. Élève violoniste d’Eugène Ysaÿe au Conservatoire de Bruxelles, il joua dans divers orchestres avant de fonder son propre orchestre à Groningue, en 1914. De toutes ses compositions de musique légère, ce fut surtout sa Ständchen («Sérénade») qui remporta un large succès international dans l’entre-deux-guerres.
