‘Boho Strings with Andreas Scholl and Tamar Halperin’

Be a He(a)ro

On 10 September 2021, to mark World Suicide Prevention Day, Boho Strings joined German countertenor Andreas Scholl and Israeli harpsichordist Tamar Halperin on the deSingel stage for a benefit concert. A tribute to Peter De Prins, a teacher and amateur musician in the Boho Strings entourage who died in 2020, the Be A He(a)ro concert aims above all to break down the taboos surrounding suicide, to better prevent and avoid it. At Bozar, these musicians come together in this poignant programme combining the baroque entreaties of Dowland, Bach and Handel with the meditative, contemporary accents of Glass, Jóhannsson, Billy Joel, Silvestrov and Sollima. The message at the heart of this concert? Everyone can be a hero by listening.
