Artist Bio


Swedish viola player Minna Svedberg grew up in a musical family in Stockholm and has established a wide professional network all over Europe, but is now based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 


​She studied with Lars Anders Tomter at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin and at the Conservatory of Amsterdam with Nobuko Imai and Marjolein Dispa. She used to be a permanent member of the European Union Youth Orchestra 2010-2014, and experience that greatly shaped both her musical and professional life. ​

Minna strongly believes in the community-building power of music and has worked as a teacher of both viola and violin at the Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra, El Sistema Stockholm and MusikSak Aarhus. ​

She holds a permanent position in the Norwegian Radio Orchestra and simultaneously maintains an active freelance career in Copenhagen, Amsterdam and London. She is frequently playing with orchestras like The Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Pynarello, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia Orchestra. ​

An avid chamber musician, Minna frequently plays with the ADAM Quartet, one of the most versatile new string quartets in the Netherlands, as well as a member of the ensemble of the Equinox Chamber Music & Dance Festival in Copenhagen. 

​Minna plays a viola by Celestino Farotto built in 1950, generously on loan from Dextra Musica.
