Nothing to see – but your whole life still waiting to happen. For Karl Meesters, his illness meant both of these: due to a genetic condition, he gradually becoms blind …

Throughout this remarkable concert, Karl tells us about his journey filled with ups and downs, with many crisis moments as well as new insights and dreams for the future.

The Vlaams Radiokoor takes over where words or images fall short: with music. It gives expression to feelings through a variety of works, which range from the astonishing, chaotic, and dark to the pure, hopeful and inspiring.
