Rinske van Oosterhout – Hornist
Rinske van Oosterhout (1994) was born into a musical family. She began playing the piano at the age of seven. Four years later, she wanted to play in an orchestra, so she chose the horn in order to be able to play in the fanfare of her village. Many orchestras followed, and now she is a member of the National Youth Orchestra. Rinske won prizes at music competitions, including the Prinses Christina Concours, which gave her many opportunities to play chamber music and solo recitals. At present she is a student of the Conservatory of Amsterdam with professor Herman Jeurissen. Thanks to the foundation ‘Stichting Eigen Muziekinstrument’ she is able to play on a Klaus Fehr horn.
