New in the Concertgebouw Orchestra
During the 2022-23 season, Nadia Ettinger took part in the Academy of the Concertgebouw Orchestra. Even before the end of the season she won the auditions for second violin, making her the fifteenth Academy alumnus to become a fully-fledged orchestra member!
Since the age of twelve, Ettinger has been performing as a soloist with several orchestras. In 2018, she performed with the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège. In 2017, when the Concertgebouw Orchestra performed Side by Side with young musicians from Luxembourg as part of the RCO meets Europe tour, Nadia was one of them. In 2021 moved to Amsterdam to study with Tjeerd Top, who is now her colleague in the orchestra.
Hornist Jonathan Wegloop joined the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in August 2023. Previously, he has been a member of the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamberg (since 2011) and the WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln (since 2020), simultaneously playing in the Mahler Chamber Orchestra since 2017.
Wegloop has performed as soloist in Richard Strauss’ and Glière’s horn concertos, and appeared as one of the soloists of Schumann's Konzertstück for four horns and orchestra under the baton of both Kent Nagano and Daniele Gatti. He is an enthusiastic chamber musician, and teaches the horn at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.
