April Newsletter

April 2, 2016

Dear Amigos,

 

I regret very much having to start this Newsletter with the sad news that our Amigo Joop Carp passed away on Tuesday. He had undergone a serious heart operation that initially looked successful, but unfortunately he did not survive ensuing complications. He will be missed by so many who knew him as the kindest friend and most generous Amigo, too. Our thoughts are now with Dorris and Family.

 

*******

The April concerts with Sa Chen are planned for Tuesday, April 12th and Wednesday, April 13th,

2016 at the usual time of 19:00 – i.e. on two consecutive days, because Sa Chen has to travel

to Milano for her engagement there on the weekend.

 

Her programme for the 2 Amigo recitals include Claude Debussy Preludes, Frederic Chopin

Mazurkas and Franz Liszt’s Sonata in B minor.

 

Make your reservations asap by sending an email to reservasconcertos@gmail.com – you know that we are usually getting fully booked and it embarrasses us very much when we have to send you away because you are calling too late.

 

Remember please: we are placing a little collection box next to the printed concert programmes on

the Reception table. Your Euro 1.00 per programme helps us to defray printing costs. Thank you !

 

Let me tell you, for your agendas, the dates of our remaining monthly concert evenings of the 2015/16 membership season. They are as follows:

 

May 17 and 19, 2016                        Alexander Schimpf, piano

June 21 and 23, 2016                        Daria Tchaikowskaja, piano

 

An additional date for you

You have already been sent the official invitation for that special event, for which we shall gather at Os Agostos, starting with a reception from 17:30 on. And I am happy to report that a number of local dignitaries and personages of public life, incl. consular representatives, have accepted our invitation.

The concert with Maestro Paul Crossley will start at 19:00 – there will be no interval.

 

If you have not yet done so, please let Cristina know that you will be attending, by sending her an

I look forward to welcoming you as usual at Os Agostos,
