Who are we?

First violin:
Rebecca began her music studies at the age of 8 and has achieved her Associate Diploma in Music (AMusA) on violin from the Australian Music Examination Board. Whilst Rebecca has also studied cello and represented Australia at the International Youth Chorus Festival in Japan, her true love remains the violin. Rebecca has been teaching violin and theory of music for over 12 years and has been involved in numerous orchestras and ensembles in Australia.

Second violin:
Pierre started playing the violin at the age of 6 years and Zanta Hofmeyr is included amongst his teachers. Throughout his musical career, Pierre performed with numerous orchestras such as the University of Pretoria Orchestra and the Symphonia Juventi. Pierre held the position of concert master in the Pretoria Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and is currently the appointed concert master of the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra. Pierre also performed various solo works with these orchestras and enjoys playing the piano and doing ensemble work.

Hendriena started with music lessons at the age of 5. She achieved grade 8 in viola and piano, as well as grade 6 in violin. Hendriena has played with several orchestras, including the Hortus Chamber Orchestra in Belgium. In 2008 Hendriena performed as a soloist with the Johannesburg Symphony Orhestra.

Celèste has been passionate about music from a young age. She started piano lessons at the age of 9. The years were filled with performances in concerts, music competitions, Unisa exams and playing in an Orff group. A highlight was a broadcast on national radio at the age of 13 and a role as a pianist in a national television series at the age of 18. As an adult she decided to pursue her dream of learning the cello and is now a member of the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra.
