First Violin

Tanja Birkelund Savery

My education: Studied at the Royal Danish Conservatoire with Milan Vitek.

My favorite composition: I have many favorites!

My greatest musical experience: In 2013 when we performed under Simon Rattle in the concert hall of the Danish Radio.

My most memorable experience in the orchestra: A free concert we gave at the old Opera house in support of the ballet and choir, who were being cut back.

When I’m not playing in the Royal Danish Orchestra: I enjoy reading, going for walks, playing chamber music, family and friends, and Winter sea bathing.
