Noa won numerous awards at a young age, including the first prize at the International Violin Competition Louis Spohr in Weimar (at the age of 9), the first prize at the Iordens Violin Competition in The Hague (at the age of 10), and the Concertgebouw Young Talent Award 2013 (at the age of 11).
Noa has attended masterclasses and lessons with Jaap van Zweden, Menahem Pressler, Frank Peter Zimmerman, Anner Bijlsma and Liviu Prunaru. Since 2014 Noa has been a member of ‘Mutter Virtuosi’, a string ensemble led by Anne-Sophie Mutter, and since May 2015 Noa has held an official scholarship from the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation – their youngest ever member.
Noa’s first recording for Warner Classics will be an all-Mozart album, which will be released in autumn 2017. Dutch TV produced a documentary “Noa 11”, broadcast in 2012, and is now editing another documentary about Noa’s childhood so far, to be released in September 17.
In 2018 Noa will play an integral part in Leeuwarden, the European Capital of Culture 2018. As part of this international event, Noa will have a carte blanche series called ‘Noa’s choice’ during the Oranjewoud Festival, a festival which has been officially selected for the responsibility of classical music programming.
Noa plays a 1714 Giovanni Grancino violin kindly on loan from the Dutch Musical Instrument Foundation. Noa’s bow was custom-made by bowmaker Benoît Rolland, commissioned by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Noa studies with Vera Beths at Amsterdam University of the Arts.
