Song of Myself' for two antiphonal choirs and speaker is a testimony to human dignity and will have it's world premier tonight at Utrecht's Pietersker in Holland. It is an honor to bring together Cappella Amsterdam, VU-Kamerkoor, conductor Krista Audere, and actresses Maaike Martens and Maartje Van de Wetering. It happens to be the 200th anniversary of Walt Whitman, as well as the 25th anniversary of Nexus Instituut. The text is based on fragments from 'Leaves of Grass' and inspired by the ideals espoused in Rob Riemen's (the president of Nexus) book 'Nobility of Spirit.''
