Inger Kuin


Inger Kuin started playing the cello when she was seven. She grew up in the Netherlands, and worked with a few different teachers there. Ever since she started playing with the local youth symphony when she was in high school she’s been hooked on playing in orchestras. In college she had the opportunity to play in the pit for productions of Bizet’s Carmen and Massenet’s Don Quichotte which started a lasting love for playing (and hearing) opera. She first moved to Brooklyn in 2007, where she still lives while pursuing a PhD in Classics from NYU. Perhaps her proudest musical achievement is playing Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with the CREA student orchestra at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. Others will say it is riding a bicycle through Brooklyn with a cello on her back.
