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!

    1. Hallo, liebe Gislinde! Wir hatten hier in der Sydney Gegend ein paar recht kühle Tage und Nächte. Wie im Winter! 15 Grad kommen uns recht kühl vor nachdem wir vor kurzem 45 Grad hatten. Wenn du jetzt schon mit dem Frühjahrsputz beginnst, dann wird ja zu Ostern alles schön aussehen. Dieses Jahr kommt Ostern ja schon im März!
      Wünsche dir dass du bald etwas wärmere Tage haben wirst.
      Viel Spass beim Frühjahrsputz und noch eine schöne Woche.
      Liebe Grüsse, Uta.

  2. You can’t get much more Irish than a name like Siobhan Patrick! Good luck to her in Vienna, another beautiful city. So glad you enjoyed the concert, and the photos look lovely.

    1. Her background is Irish, that’s for sure. But she grew up in Queensland.
      Siobhan has such a beautiful voice. We always love to hear her singing. Our daughter has been friends with her for more than ten years. She’s a very friendly and enthusiastic person. It’s a joy for us to see her doing well. Thanks, Cat, for commenting.
