Thirty-two going on sixteen… Living the rom-com life every single day, creating inspiration for a future book by every awkward experience. First book ‘written’ (read: dictated to mom) at the age of three. A self-made copywriter and lover of languages.

DJ Jeff Mills and philharmonie zuidnederland took stage at Het Concertgebouw for a magical night of classical music combined with experimental tunes in a performance called The Planets. Not your typical techno night, not the conventional classical concert, but the perfect way to attract a wider audience. Incredible work of the man of the night Jeff Mills, the musicians and conductor Christophe Mangou – who proved that classical musicians possess some impressive moves too…

Intriguing, to say the least. The audience is captured and led on a journey through time and space, on the magical beats and beautiful tunes.
