On May 1st. our conductor Annemarie Philipps celebrated her 70th birthday. Instead of the usual rehearsal, over 70 friends and Members of Collegium Musicum met at the La Jinete Restaurant in La Cala de Mijas for a celebration lunch.
Musicians, Singers and Friends joined together to wish her a Happy Birthday and even the rain couldn’t silence the happy voices. The honorary president of Collegium Musicum, Count Rudi gave a wonderful speech reminiscing the years and congratulating her on her achievements, especially being the conductor of Collegium Musicum for 25 years. The afternoon ended with Annemarie thanking all and everybody agreed it was a great afternoon.
Now it is time to get back and prepare for the last few rehearsal before the concerts at the end of May in Guadiaro and Marbella.
