Carel Kraayenhof Ensemble’s violinist Bert Vos has introduced his mother’s very good friend to Carel, het name is Frieda Menco (89 years old). Bert’s mother, the writer Ida Vos, has unfortunately already passed away.
Frieda, who survived Auschwitz and was friends with Margot and Anne Frank, is not able to go outside that often anymore due to her physical condition. A few weeks ago she mentioned to Bert that should would really like to see Carel Kraayenhof playing live, but due to her physical condition that would most likely not happen. Bert has mentioned this to Carel, who immediately decided to hold a planned rehearsal with harp player Lavinia Meijer at Frieda’s living room!
During the rehearsal, coincidentally, journalist Jutta Chorus was present and wrote a special collum in early April about this special rehearsal.
