Francien Schatborn

Violist at Amsterdam's hotspot for musical discovery

Francien Schatborn discovered her love for the viola during her studies at the conservatory and has served as principle viola with the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra for 20 years.

Francien regularly offers her viola students a venue in Splendor and has organized two editions of the Viola Festival.

'Splendor offers the possibility to express yourself in a different way and to develop yourself as a musician. For me, the Splendor Parade at the start of each year is always a personal high point.'
