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, Concerto Köln, Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir and PRJCT Amsterdam, a new ensemble founded by coutertenor Maarten Engeltjes. Since the summer of 2017, she has been a member of the Orchestra of the 18th Century. In the 2017 St. John’s Passion Tour with De Nederlandse Bachvereniging, she appeared as one of the Viola d’Amore soloists. Interested in interdisciplinary collaborations, she is developing her own conceptual projects inspired on early repertoire. An example of this was the the performance Sfessania, that was shown at Delft Fringe Restival and the Alba Nova Festival 2019. As a keen organiser, Matthea was involved as a conference manager for the 2016 conference of the Society for Artistic Research. She hopes that the beauty of early music will inspire people from all ages.

She lives in The Hague with her husband, son and 19 year old cat.
