When you asked me to fill the position as musical director I thought: What a wonderful and innovative Idea, which is so obvious. I firmly believe that we can do our part to improve the world, to make it a better place. Through music – but also by showing that different cultures and religions have the same ethical basis: Peace and Love – which make the world a more livable place.
