Robin Veldman

Robin Veldman (the Hague, 1998) currently studies at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague. This year, she’ll complete her master studies with Lisa Jacobs.

Robin started playing the violin at the age of 5. A few years later her sister joined a youth orchestra in the Hague, and of course Robin couldn't stay behind. There she discovered her love for orchestra playing. During this, she started her high school at the Havo voor Muziek en Dans at Codarts (Rotterdam), where she had lessons with Thijs Kramer, Andras Czifra and Natasha Morozova.

In 2016, she successfully auditioned for the bachelor studies at the Royal Conservatoire with Theodora Geraets. When studying The Hague, she joined the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands. 
Where she had, during the winter of 2020, the opportunity of leading the second violin section.

In the season of 21/22 Robin was one of the academists of the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra. From the 23/24 season Robin will be one of the academists of the Netherlands philharmonic and Netherlands chamber orchestra. Currently, Robin is active as a remplaçant with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.

Robin is a very active chamber musician as member of the Mare Quartet. Next to this, she's given the opportunity to play more solo performances (with annd without orchestra).

She plays on a Giaovanni Fracesco Celoniato (Turin, 1720) provided by the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation. In a smaller size than usual, because she has incredibly tiny hands.
