Chantal van den Engel
Hi, my name is Chantal and I am 24 years old. I have been playing the violin ever since I was seven and I am still doing this next to my Law degree. In recent years I’ve played with pleasure in the orchestra L.S.K.O. Collegium Musicum in Leiden and I participated in all kinds of project orchestras. Now I have finally found the time to join Ricciotti; something I wanted to do because of all the good stories.
I am very much looking forward to making music outside the concert hall and going out with the enthusiastic group. I think it will be fun to play for people who normally do not go to a classical concert and even getting them to dance with the salsa music. I think it’s fantastic that we are going to Cuba, it is an opportunity as a musician to visit the country and see the Cubans dance!
