Life & Death

It is always the existential questions which lead to great art – when is music more beautiful and intense than when it concerns life and death? Together with the internationally sought-after mezzo-soprano, Olivia Vermeulen, and the electric guitarist, Kalle Kalima, B’Rock invites you to an evening of great emotion and steers the audience between deep sadness and despair towards overwhelming joy, comfort and confidence.
