SUMMER GREETINGS ! I hope you are enjoying the summer somewhere
not too hot – not too cold, but wherever you are with a lot of music. Music
festivals abound, making decisions difficult and timely planning necessary.
And in this sense let me give you below the summary of the Amigo concerts
for the 2018/19 season for your agendas in good time.
The NEWSFLASH concerns the first concerts in September:
The much praised Russian pianist Andrey Gugnin, coming from Moscow, will not be
accompanied by the cellist, as announced – he will be giving 2 solo piano recitals
on Tuesday, September 11th and 13th, 2018.
This timing coincides with the Amigos Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Tuesday,
September 11th, 2018 for which you will receive the convocations in due time – please
take note of the date and note, this is for active Amigos only !
The INVITATION I am passing herewith on to you is for an
Amigos Dinner with Music
with the “Inversus” Fado de Coimbra Group
on September 28th, 2018 at 19:30
InVersus – Grupo de Fados e Guitarradas de Coimbra – illustrate with their music a strong connection to the academic experience and the Portuguese fado, with its famous
expression of “saudade” – a reflection of nostalgia related to life and the many moments that pass and leave us unforgettable feelings. They have performed fado classics since
1999. They will sing and play for us and join us for the evening.
Please keep the evening of Friday, September 28th, 2018 free for this wonderful event. We shall meet at the “Faz Gostos” Restaurant in Faro at 19:30. For information of this restaurant visit their website: http://fazgostos.com/?lang=en
Price per person: €35.00 and you can bring family or friends.
I look forward to seeing you soon in September and often during the new Amigo Season
of 2018/19 with the 18 scheduled monthly concerts as well as several special events from
time to time. Let me also thank you for your faithful allegiance and continued friendship.
Best personal regards and
