Amsterdam -

The Netherlands have chosen their Young Musicians for 2014, and will be represented by Lucie Horsch.

The 14-year old recorder player has a long list of successes to her name despite her young age, and since 2011 she has been studying at the Sweelinck Akademie at the Conservatorium of Amsterdam with Walter van Hauwe. And Lucie doesn’t only take recorder lessons there - she is also enrolled as a piano student with Marjes Benoist!

Having won several competitions including the ‘Talentenjacht’ of the Concertgebouw and the first online Prinses Christina contest in 2009 Lucie was invited to perform as a soloist on television with the ‘JeugdOrkest Nederland’ under Jurjen Hempel during the AVRO ‘Prinsengrachtconcert’.

In April last year Lucie won the “Avond van de jonge musicus” with a televised performance of the Sammartini concerto with the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra under Matthew Rowe.

In addition to all of this, Lucie has also been a member of the National Childrens Choir for 7 years, performing with orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra of Hilversum. She also made an appearance during the televised farewell concert for the former Queen Beatrix accompanied by the Netherlands Wind Ensemble.
