With Rondo Russo, Berdien Stenberg made a spectacular entrance into the world of light classical music. In her own way, which later proved so typical of her career, she knew her sparkling flute would bridge the gap between classical and popular music. In no time, Rondo Russo was the number one hit in the Dutch charts. This was the start of the career of one of the most successful Dutch flutists.
At the age of nine, Berdien began studying flute at the Municipal Music School Almelo. With dedication and perseverance, but especially with a lot of fun, Berdien - who later would inspire generations of children to the flute - studied every day for hours, which finally resulted in a course at the renowned Royal Conservatory in The Hague. Acting and performing is in her blood. In order to fund her studies, Berdien started performing with renowned regional and national orchestras. With her study friend, Berdien travelled through many towns and countries for countless coffee and school concerts, and also for performances in parks and stations. Those trips were not confined to the Netherlands, and also included cities such as London and Paris. She still has her spaghetti with pesto sauce from Italy as a 'souvenir.'
She has now also performed in the United States and Japan in imaginative venues as the famous Royal Albert Hall in London and the prestigious Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
