Merel was invited by the Dutch Embassy to give concerts in Indonesia in January 2017. Together with cellist Joachim Eijlander and writer/presenter Merlijn Kerkhof she performed the newly developed lecture recital “All begins with Bach” at venues in Jakarta, Surabaya (Java) and Lampung (Sumatra). The Indonesian audience was very appreciative!
