Music connects people and makes the world turn around

We - my kids and me - like to play and sing music: whether it is at home, in a choir or in an orchestra, making music together is always special. Going to concerts and operas is perhaps the next best thing and fortunately, Amsterdam has a lot to offer: from modern opera to world music and classical symphony. I even at times deliver commentary as a philosopher to national broadcasts of opera or classical concerts. So yes, music makes the heart tick.
