At the age of seven, NOA WILDSCHUT made her debut in the main hall of Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw at the “Night of the Promising.” Today the young Dutch violinist has firmly gained her place on the international stage, working with the Pittsburgh Symphony, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Netherlands Philharmonic, Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Camerata Salzburg, among others. This performance marks her debut under San Francisco Symphony auspices.

Nominated a Rising Star of the 2019–20 season by the European Concert Hall Organisation, she has performed at the Philharmonie de Paris, L’auditori Barcelona, Palais des Beaux Arts Brussels, and many more. She has won numerous awards, including First Prize at the International Violin Competition Louis Spohr in Weimar, First Prize at the Iordens Violin Competition in the Hague, and the Concertgebouw Young Talent Award. In 2018 she curated a series called “Noa’s Choice” during the Oranjewoud Festival.

In 2016 Ms. Wildschut became an exclusive recording artist for Warner Classics. Her first recording, an all-Mozart album, was released in September 2017. She studied with Antje Weithaas at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin and plays a 1714 Giovanni Grancino violin made available to her by the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation. Her bow was custom made by bowmaker Benoît Rolland, commissioned by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation.
