Thijs van Leer
In the 70's, when Thijs toured with his rock band FOCUS throughout the world, his single "Hocus Pocus" was an international hit. Later, Thijs also favoured the jazz and loved to interprete baroque and classical themes. The flute is Thijs' favoured instrument, but he is also accomplished on the piano and the organ.
