Judith Verona



She is known for her energy, dedication and enthusiasm for her profession. She does not only work in numerous groups and ensembles nationally and internationally, but she has also specialized in different branches of music and pedagogy.

Discovered her passion for classical music and the violin in Gran Canaria, her hometown, where she began her career at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Las Palmas with professors Elías Rodriguez and Mariana Abacioaie.

At the age of nineteen, she decided to continue her studies in the Peninsula with maestro Enrique Palomares at the Superior Conservatory of Music of Aragon, Zaragoza, obtaining the highest marks.

Thanks to great teachers like Vera Martínez, Abel Tomás, Jonathan Brown, Arnau Tomás (members of the Casals Quartet), among others, she discovered a taste for chamber music and, with the violinist Lina Tur, began her trajectory in baroque music.  

For the next twelve years she lived in Utrecht, the Netherlands, where she worked as a freelance musician in numerous groups and orchestras in the country. There she continued training and expanded her career with Early Music studies in 2009 with the baroque violinist Antoinette Lohman. It is in 2011 when she obtained the Superior Violin degree at the Conservatory of Tilburg, Holland, with the teacher Kees Hulsman.

Since then she has been a founding member of the  Gesto Antico based on historical performance with barroque instruments with whom she travels all over the Dutch geography giving numerous concerts. This trio has participated in early music festivals such as Fabulous Oude Muziek Utrecht Festival 2012 and 2013 or Festival de Saintes' Spotlighton Young Artists 2012, France or International Festival of Flander, Antwerp.

Great virtuosos of music have been part of her development as a violinist  and her musical training receiving masterclasses from Nicolas Chumachenco, Kees Koelmans, Serguei Fatkouline, Elisabeth Perry, François Fernández, David Peralta, Anner Bylsma, Jill Feldman, Viola de Hoog, Hilary Metzger, Mikhail Zemtsov, Kees Boeke or Rainer Zipperling, among others.

Regarding her professional experience, she stands out both as an expert musician in documented historical interpretation, as a violinist specialized in classical music, thus collaborating in orchestras of both styles, such as the Philharmonic and Symphony Orchestra of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Symphony Orchestra de Valencia, La Camerata Aragón, Bach Orchestra of the Nederlands, Nieuwe Philarmonie Utrecht Orkest, the Orquesta Barroca de Tenerife or De Nederlandse Bachvereniging, among others.

She has worked with great directors such as Lutz Köhler, Yaron Traub, Peter Kooij, Jacques Ogg, Alfredo Bernardini, Josep Vicent, Shunske Sato, Jos van Veldhoven or Philippe Herreweghe; and has played in important concert halls such as Gilles Lefebvre Pavilion (Montreal), Berliner Philharmonie, The Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), or the Great National Theater in Beijing, China, among others.

Thanks to her tireless desire to learn, Judith continues five years of training in violin pedagogy. She specializes as a Suzuki Method Violin teacher with Johannes Lievaart, Koen Rens, Wilfried van Gorp, Veerle van Gorp and Wim Meuris. This methodology is based on the belief that talent is not innate since all children can develop it at a high level starting from the early stages, involving parents and thus creating the best positive environment for the child.

At last Judith also specialized in Music Mind Games. A methodology of music learning which brings joy to kids of all ages while learning music through games.
