I am over the moon excited to announce that I have received the Kersjes Violin Award. The Kersjes Foundation is a key supporter of the arts in The Netherlands, funding bursaries for young musicians.
“Diamanda is an extremely versatile violinist who moves easily between the classical and contemporary domains… At a young age she claims a prominent place on the national and international concert stage with her unique style of playing.”
From the jury report
The Violin Award comes with a €15.000 grant to be spent on my development and career.
A huge congratulations to the other winners as well : Berlage Saxophone Quartet, Niek Baar, and Frans-Aert Burghgraef.
