Des Herzens stillem Glück
3 pm Sunday 3 February 2013
Goethe-Institut – 90 Ocean Street, Woollahra (Sydney), NSW, Australia
A fund raising concert with songs from the 18th to the 20th century by Mozart, Schubert, Strauss, Haydn, Gounod, Wagner, Puccini, Bax, Floyd, Rorem, Heggie. Besides our friend Siobhan a friend of Siobhan’s, Alison Manifold, participated. Alison is also an accomplished Soprano singer.
At the Piano was Francis Greep, two Cello players were guest artists.
After the concert cups of tea were offered and the artists mingled with the crowd to talk about the concert. We were able to take some pictures with Siobhan.
The last two songs had the titles: “I will always love you.” and “My true love hath my heart”.
Thanks to the generous support of the Australia Council for the Arts, Siobhan is able to move to Vienna in March for a fantastic career opportunity.
Peter and I as well as our daughter Caroline enjoyed the concert very much. We wish Siobhan all the best for her stay in Vienna!
Siobhan has a Graduate Diploma of Music (Opera) from the Westerm Australian Academy of Performing Arts and an Honours degree in Masthematics from Jams Cook University. Her experience spans opera, Oratorio, music theatre, cabaret, string quartets and Irish bands.
