SYNOPSIS:
In this presentation, Herbert will share his personal experiences how his side kick as a musician opened doors and helped him make friends in places as different as London, Warsaw, Baku and Chicago. The discussion will focus on the formal factor of music in diplomatic protocol (national anthems, joint attendance of heads of state at music performances) and the informal contribution of music (President Obama singing “Amazing Grace”, Pres. Clinton playing saxophone at the WH) to events and the perception thereof.
