Lonneke van Straalen

Violinist at Amsterdam's hotspot for musical discovery

As violinist, Lonneke van Straalen has performed in nearly every concert hall in the Netherlands. After establishing her own chamber music festival in Amersfoort, she went on to her latest project: Pynarello, a future-oriented collective of musicians from different backgrounds. Her efforts earned her the 2017 Prix Madelein Margot.

'Splendor is a warm bath filled with artists and their audience. Together we search for what music means for us and others. It's a constant and ever-changing adventure.'
