PdG Cares!

The Peter de Grote Festival is developing a new part of the festival, together with the lectorate Life Long Learning of the Prins Claus Conservatoire: PdG Cares! Krista Pyykönen (violin), Luca Altdorfer (viola), Maaike van der Linde (flute), Beste Sevindik (violin), Jesse Faber (clarinet) and René van Munster (cello) will bring music to the patients on two surgical departments of the UMCG hospital.

Music has the power to heal and has a positive influence on the recovery, the decrease of pain experience and tension of the patients. The musicians improvise on individual patient basis and besides that perform repertoire for both patients and employees.
