German Unity Day is a national holiday in Germany commemorating the reunification, which occurred in 1990, where the former GDR (East Germany) joined the Federal Republic of Germany, following the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989. This year the choir was invited by ambassador Deike Potzel to sing the German, Irish and European anthems at the annual reception in her splendid residence Danesfield. We had a great choir turnout and got two rounds of applause and lots of praise, both from ambassador Potzel and from Dublin Lord Mayor Paul McAuliffe. There was a lovely outdoor party afterwards with miraculously good weather, excellent Franconian wine, Bavarian beer und Bratwurst.
