Linde Verjans

Linde Verjans got her first violin lessons from Marleen Dupont when she was five years old. She later took lessons at the music academies of Tienen and Bornem. She completed music school with the highest distinction. At the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp, Linde was tutored by Tatiana Samouil, Jolente De Maeyer and Katelijne Vinkeroye. After successfully completing her master studies, she studied for a year with Gordan Nikolic in Rotterdam. She also took master classes with Liviu Prunaru, Donald Weilerstein, Tanja Becker-Bender, Barnabás Kelemen and Julia Fischer, among others. In 2010 Linde received first prize in the national Dexia Classics competition.

Since April 2022, she has performed as co-leader of second violins at the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra. In addition to classical music, Linde has played since 2015 in the Triunfal Quintet, a tango-nuevo ensemble with Antwerp roots. She is also part of Grand Picture Palace.

Linde plays on an 1836 Olry, an instrument she was able to purchase thanks to the Stichting Eigen Muziekinstrument (SEM) and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
