I am privileged to be invited by the Rector Magnificus of Radboud University Nijmegen to perform at the Honorary Doctorate Ceremony of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany on 23 May.
Ms. Merkel will receive an Honorary Doctorate for her contribution to international civil society, her commitment to Europe and her recognition of the importance of science.
A day later, I will be playing at the Honorary Doctorate Ceremony of Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, USA, Professor Frances Ashcroft and Professor Robert Edward Freeman.
For Ms Merkel, I will play the Chaconne by her countryman Handel. This is going to be exciting!
