Margaret Lawrence concert ticket

February 1999 we arrived in Prague after the worst snow there for 40 years and the snow flew up past the plane windows as we landed!  It was to be a magical few days with a concert of famous Mozart arias at the Estates Theatre where many had been performed in Mozart’s day. But the icing on the cake was to be our last evening when we went to one of the many concerts performed by young students in the early evening.

This one at the baroque Klementinum, Chapel of Mirrors. Entitled Ave Maria, it was simply a soprano and an organist. The concert ended with the soprano singing Alleluia (Exsultate Jubilate), the purest and most sublime young voice, ringing in the beautiful surroundings.
