TEDxAmsterdamED 2015 Opening
The founders and members of Classick aim to get an important message across - that we should not focus on our differences, but rather our similarities. They energise this message by the means of music, as after all, music is colour blind. A vocalist and a rapper will perform a piece titled ‘I can be great’ accompanied by drums, cello, keyboard and violin. For more information: www.stichtingtwisted.nl Classick is an experiment in blending two distinct music genres, classical and hip-hop, into one coherent work. Both subcultures fuse to create compositions where classical music, such as Bach, is supported by rappers and visa versa. Collaborations on this project break down social and societal barriers to stimulate greater understanding, appreciation and mutual respect.
