Robert Van De Vorst, Pianist

As both, a scientist and an artist, it’s a great honor for me to help promote bringing classical music to the new generation by supporting Ilona’s initiative, GetClassical In School. Besides specific advantages in the realm of linguistic, cognitive and motor skill’s development, music has a unique power to stimulate intellect, curiosity, spirit and empathy. Therefore I love to encourage such a project that brings classical music back to the classroom, where children can share the joy and freedom of artistic expression.
