Heinz Polzer, a.k.a. Drs. P, may have held a degree in economics, but as a songwriter, poet and musician he gave the Dutch GNP for linguistic joy a real boost. In June 2015 he died. Time to bring a musical ode to the man, thought singer Fay Lovsky [Leyden, 1955], actress Ineke Nijssen [Eindhoven,1960], violinist Nele Paelinck  and actress Maaike Cafmeyer [Torhout, 1973].
With their staged concert they are honouring the man who was responsible for unforgettable lyrics about a troika ride to Omsk, the to-ing and fro-ing of a ferry and chicory, swede, black salsify and leek. Soirée Émancipée is made with vocal/musical support from singer Jan De Smet [Duffel, 1953], drummer Stoy Stoffelen [Belgium, 1954] and guitarist Jean Blaute [Zottegem, 1952]. The curator of this unique concert is theatre maker Dirk Pauwels [Antwerp, 1955].
