Joshua    Herwig


At the age of 5 I fell in Love with the sound of cello and began with lessens with Esther de Boer. After that I followed classes with René Berman and Maria Hol. In 2013 I started in the Jong Talentenklas at the conservatorium with Jeroen Den Herder in Rotterdam and with Karlien Bartels in Zwolle. After that I received lessons from Pamela Smits and now I study classical and jazz with Mick Stirling and Jeffrey Bruinsma at the Conservatory of Amsterdam

On my musical journey I have had masterclasses with many inspiring musicians, such as Markus Stockhausen, Johannes Moser, Gavriel Lipkind and Oene van Geel.

I have won prizes at the Britten Concours, Herman Krebbers Concours, Regional final of the princes Christina Concours in 2018 and National final of the princes Christina Concours in 2020. I played in the Britten Youth String Orchestra for nine years from 2011 until 2019 where I was leading cellist for the last 4 years. 

I love composing and improvising. For Woodcraft I wrote Cascada, Daphne & Apollo and Prometheus. I also make orchestral and chamber arrangements for various ensembles.
