My name is Maud, I'm 21 years old and a 100% Brabander. I have been making music since I can remember. I started in the choir of Sint-Janskathedraal in Den Bosch and then I went to oboe with a saxophone in jazz. I've been passionate about this since I was fourteen and have been following the Young Musicians Academy for three years in Tilburg. I started studying Philosophy in Leiden three years ago and I'm now studying the bachelor's classical oboe with Karel Schoofs in The Hague.
In addition to my studies, I have been playing in the Sweelinck Orchestra in Amsterdam for almost three years now. Classical music has always been the genre that touched me most, but in fact every genre of music can get me moving. Secretly I want to integrate jazz a bit more in my oboe technique. It seems cool to be able to pick up every musical movement and to be able to move freely into it. I am therefore very enthusiastic and curious about what the Ricciotti (both people and music) will bring me.
