About Marike van Dijk

Dutch saxophonist/composer Marike van Dijk began playing jazz as a precocious 14 year old. She went on to study at the Rotterdam Conservatory from which she graduated (cum laude) in 2006. She continued her studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory, obtaining her master’s degree in jazz performance (cum laude). In 2009 Marike was nominated for the prestigious Dutch “Deloitte jazz award” and the “Amersfoort jazz talent award”. JazzNL, a foundation for promoting young Dutch jazz talent, selected her as an “artist deserving wider recognition”. In May 2013 she obtained her second masters degree, this time from New York University, for which she was awarded a full scholarship by the Dutch ‘Huygens Scholarship Programme’. Prior to moving to the Big Apple, van Dijk toured Europe extensively, performing at prestigious festivals and venues with her quintet, and the European Jazz Orchestra, among others. The Brooklyn-based artist’s debut album Patches of Blue was released in 2010, and in 2015 she offered the brilliant follow up, The Stereography Project.
