Uitvogelen with Merel Vercammen

About the Event

Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Amsterdam's breathtaking De Waalse Kerk for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of music.

How musical are birds? Why do they sing? Does a bird's song sound like music only to us, or do birds experience music like most people? Under the title 'Uitvogelen,' professor of music cognition Henkjan Honing, violinist Merel Vercammen and accordionist Wilco Oomkes will address this question. Merel and Wilco will play bird music by Vivaldi, Dvorak and Trojan and improvisations on the character of birds. Henkjan tells what is special about the pigeon, zebra finch and cockatoo. And who knows, maybe a blackbird will stop by.
