She was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra and led the Netherlands Youth String Orchestra for many years. In 2002 Marije came to England to continue her studies at the Royal Northern College of Music. She is a founder member of the Navarra Quartet with whom she has won numerous prizes and awards.
