Tineke de Jong

Tineke graduated at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam in 1990, having studied with István Párkányi. The year before she took part in the autumn and spring courses at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada. Since then she has been working on a free-lance basis with the orchestras and ensembles listed below.
