Anahi Oraisón - violin, viola and electric violin

Anahi Oraisón was admitted to the young talent class of the Rotterdam Conservatory at the age of nine, after only three years of playing the violin. In January 2006 she finished her BM degree in violin at Codarts, University of Professional Arts Education, in Rotterdam. She is currently in her last year of the MM program at Codarts, studying violin with Thijs Kramer and Gordan Nicolić and viola with Anne Huser.
She is specializing in Dutch contemporary music and researching contemporary violin techniques.

Anahi has been very active as a contemporary musician this past year. She has collaborated with composers Jacob ter Veldhuis, Chiel Meijering and Roderik de Man in preparation of performances of their works. She was invited to perform as a soloist in the opening ceremony of the Dutch liberation day in 2008 (a national event for an audience including the queen and the prime minister), playing Cancion de cuna para Anahi by Gustavo Trujillo. She played several premieres in a concert featuring the works of the young emerging composer Joey Roukens. Later this year she will give performances of Grab It! by Jacob ter Veldhuis and Spazio Piccolo by Roderik de Man.

Anahi is also working as an orchestral musician, chamber musician and violin teacher. Her orchestral experiences started at a very early age in orchestras such as the National Youth Orchestra (NJO). Currently she is an active freelancer in the Rotterdam area, playing regularly with orchestras such as Continuo-Rotterdam (concertmaster) and the Rotterdam Chamber Orchestra. She was appointed as concert master of the ‘Orchest-Vereeniging’ in 2006.
Anahi has a large class of violin students at the ‘Muziekvereniging Crescendo’ in Sliedrecht and teaches privately in Dordrecht.
