Matthea de Muynck (Rotterdam, 1988) is a versatile musician, trained in classics (Greek and Latin) at Leiden University and in classical and baroque violin at the conservatoires of The Hague, Leipzig and Amsterdam. She has a great passion for early music and is very happy to perform regularly with outstanding ensembles such as the European Union Baroque Orchestra, De Nederlandse Bachvereniging, the Orchestra of the 18th Century, Concerto Köln, Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir and PRJCT Amsterdam, a new ensemble founded by coutertenor Maarten Engeltjes. In the 2017 St. John’s Passion Tour with De Nederlandse Bachvereniging, she appeared as one of the Viola d’Amore soloists. As a keen organiser, Matthea was involved as a conference manager for the 2016 conference of the Society for Artistic Research and is currently setting up an artist collective at theatre De Nieuwe Regentes in The Hague. She hopes that the beauty of early music will inspire people from all ages. Matthea plays a Dutch violin from the atelier of Hendrick Jacobs Amsterdam, kindly given in loan to her by the Dutch Foundation for Musical Instruments (NMF). She lives in The Hague with her boyfriend and cat.
