In an old Amsterdam warehouse/antique shop, Rosanne is hosting her own concert series called ‘The Amsterdam Salon’. The evening opens with a concert, played by Rosanne and her friends from all over the world, following a clear theme, while the audience listens on comfortable couches, sipping good wine. After the concert there is an artist-jam session until the early hours. Rosanne started to play violin at the age of three with Anneke Schilt and later on with the famous violin pedagogue Coosje Wijzenbeek. She continued her studies with Vera Beths at the Royal Conservatory in The Haag, and with Ulf Wallin at the Hanns Eisler Akademie in Berlin, graduating from both with the highest possible grades. On personal recommendation of Janine Jansen, Rosanne plays the ‘Barrere’ Stradivarius from the Elise Mathilde Foundation, the violin that Janine Jansen used to play for fifteen years.
