“Where words fail, music speaks.”—Hans Christian Andersen


We have been making music since the beginning of mankind. It brings us together, quickens our pulses, and IS the universal language. With her pianistic expertise and powerful storytelling Jacquelyne will bring the makers of music to life in this penetrating journey through opera.
