On Tue 6 March, Members and Friends of the Society met up in The National Concert Hall in Dublin for a concert in memory of Otto & Pat Glaser. The concert was a sell out and magnificently memorable musical evening. Our president Guy Johnston, welcomed all members of the Society to the concert, and in particular, members of Otto & Pat's family as well as the Austrian Ambassador, Dr. Helmut Freudenschuss and his wife Sigrid. The Gypsy Trio - Claudie Driesen, Violetta-Valérie Muth and Owen Lorigan - gave a wonderful performance of music from Haydn, Franz Schubert and Mendelsohn-Bartholdy. After the interval, Declan Downey gave an insightful tribute of Otto's life and achievements and how he and Pat met and their life together. You can read Declan's speech in full here.

Otto & Pat were great lovers of Austrian music and culture and this evening was a fitting celebration of their life. It is safe to say they were very much present in spirit.
