Welcome to my personal web site. Here you will find the most complete information about my life. As a child I discovered the joy of music making. Whether singing songs, playing tunes on the piano, or singing along with my sisters and friends, music always made me feel at home. I also discovered that music making helped me overcome loneliness and sadness, but also brought me joy and happiness in the special moments of my life. To date I have enjoyed the same kind of happiness building up programs for audiences that are different all over the world but are united in a "love affair" with music. I hope I can inspire you to discover my world of music and that my web site will give you a small insight.

Sincerely yours,
