Marie van Rhijn (harpsichord)
Born in 1990 in Northern France, Marie van Rhijn started the harpsichord early as a child. She studied in Paris with Ilton Wjuniski, Olivier Baumont, Blandine Rannou, Kenneth Weiss and Noëlle Spieth and enriched her experience by taking part to the Erasmus scheme to study at Royal College of Music in London in 2010 with Terence Charlston and Jane Chapman. Amongst numerous scholarships, she has received awards from the Adami, Société Générale, Fondation Meyer, Fonds Tarrazzi, Paris aides Jeunes Talents, and SYLFF Foundation (Japan).
Since then, she has performed extensively on the international stage, most recently in France, Italy, Brazil, Austria and Germany. She enjoys teaching and regularly leads workshops and masterclasses. She has been selected as a Junior Fellow at Royal College of Music in 2013-2014 and has won prizes in early music competitions as a soloist or continuo in UK, France, the Netherlands, Russia and Austria. Marie performs regularly with several early music ensembles and she founded Trio Dauphine, an original formation with harp, harpsichord and violin, who were winners of the FNAPEC Paris chamber competition in 2012, who released their first recording by Arion.
Marie has been appointed as the harpsichord teacher in CRR (Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional) in Cergy-Pontoise, and as a vocal coach at CMBV (Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles). She toured with ensemble Les Arts Florissants in April and May 2015.
