Violinist Emmy Storms!
For me, it is particularly exciting to see and hear so much young talent continue to emerge world-wide! We have a large group of terrific young pianists, and there are an ever increasing group of violinists and other instrumentalists, who are coming into the concert stage, as well.
Emmy Storms started to play the violin when she was only 5 years old. After only three years she was admitted to the preliminary training of the Royal School of Music in the Hague (Netherland). In 2001, at age 12, she was admitted to the School of Music there.
Emmy was successful and obtained the highest awards at several contests. She plays in the AKO orchestra of the School of Music and the Viotta Youth Orchestra. Her latest success was the Davina van Wely Concours 2005 in The Hague for young violin players. She obtained the highest award.
In 2005, at age 16, she won the first prize at the Davina van Wely Competition, and in 2009 a third prize at the National Oskar Back Violin Competition, playing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Orchestra of the Conservatory in The Hague.
