In this concert, different singing traditions meet in the themes of farewell and peace.

Wasim Arslan, Naftalie Hershler and Daan Verlaan sing about these themes from respectively the Arab (Sufi) tradition, the Jewish and the (classical) Western traditions.

Then mezzo-soprano Helena van Heel, accompanied by Floor Le Coultre (violin) and Willem Stam (cello) will perform Jeff Hamburg’s work A Prayer; Colomba.
