Sanne Zwikker is a 14-year-old Dutch-American violinist from New York City. She picked up her first violin at age of three. Later, she moved to the Greater New York area to study at the Manhattan School of Music conservatory. In 2018, Luister magazine introduced Sanne as the “young, super talented violinist from New York City”. This renown classical music magazine premiered her full performance of the Saint Saens Violin Concerto in the fall of 2020. In the summer of 2019, Sanne brought her GenZ Tour to the Netherlands where she performed her Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with sold out performances in 4 cities. Mexican-American conductor, Felipe Tristan praised her: “She is very talented and driven, and her repertoire is difficult.” In the same year, her crossover version of Bach’s 1st Sonata with world champ beatboxer, B-Art was streamed live to 100K gen Z followers. LEVEN magazine called her the “young protégée who builds bridges in the world of music”, referring to working across borders, music styles, and age groups.

During her earlier years she studied under the guidance of Carl Shugart (a Juilliard alumni and former student of Leonard Rose and Channing Robbins), in the Greater New York City area. At nine years old, she moved to Miami to study with Michael Klotz (Senior Instructor and Artist-in-Residence at Florida International University, and a Juilliard alumni and former student of Lewis Kaplan and Lynn Blakeslee). Her principle influence is Ida Haendel and Julia Fischer.
