IGSG Garden Concert
Indo-German Friendship Society, Goa (IGSG), organized a Garden Concert
on Sunday, 10th February 2008 at the ‘Casa de Sodovin’ in Verna.
Franz Schubert Cotta & his Orchestra under the Guest Conductor
Miguel Cotta played western classical music, which included pieces of
Handel, Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn.
Aurobindo Xavier, President of the Society, welcomed the guests and
introduced the formation of the Society and its aims. Although the
orchestra was the focus of attention, the audience could not resist in
being overwhelmed by the beautiful lake and its scenic surroundings in
the background. The orchestra comprised mainly of youngsters some of
which were barely 12 years old. The warm sunset light provided a very
nice ambience to the whole event.
