Hildegard not only works on her flying skills, but also tours very comfortably with the bus, the train or the airplane, which also flies, but still she wants to be able to fly by herself!
However, we didn't only spend the last four weeks with a lot of travelling, but mostly also with playing concerts. That's why we want to thank our dear audiences for all the reactions, during and after the shows. Meeting so many open ears and attentive minds is just fantastic and we really appreciate it!
See you soon!
