Ilonka Kolthof

Second Prize winner of the ''2017 Kujala International Piccolo Competition'' Ilonka Kolthof is developing an international career as a piccolo soloist. As such, she has performed across the U.S. and Europe, including a solo recital at the 2016 National Flute Association's convention in San Diego (CA). Additionally, Kolthof was a Third Prize winner of the ''2014 NFA Piccolo Artist Competition'' in Chicago and a finalist of the ''Concours d'interprétation de la ville de Boulogne-Billancourt 2013'' in Paris. This year she will release her first piccolo solo CD on Globe Records. 

Kolthof performs many concerts as an orchestral musician and chamber music artist. She is a regular guest player with a.o. the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal the Liège, the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, the Norrköpings Symfoniorkester, the Dutch Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, the Arnhem Philharmonic, The Hague Philharmonic and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra. Feeling equally at home as a concerto soloist, Kolthof performed with the Dutch Limburg Symphony Orchestra.

Kolthof initiated the Dutch Piccolo Project, through which she aims to emphasize and bring to the limelight the piccolo as an autonomous solo instrument. As a result of her commitment to contemporary repertoire, Kolthof was awarded scholarships by the Dutch Prince Bernhard Culture Fund and the Willem Mengelberg Fund of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
