CSULB's Special Dinner with Father Benjamin

After The Bob Cole Conservatory Choir's return from Vienna to Goettweig on June 4th, Father Benjamin had arranged a special dinner for the group at one of the wineries in the surrounding village. Here, the group enjoyed traditional Austrian dishes, as well as locally made wine.

As a thank you, the group sang Father Benjamin's favorite song from their repertoire, Bright Morning Star, where he had to wipe away a tear from his eye during their performance. Dr. Jonathan Talberg and our tour manager Barbara also presented Father Benjamin with chocolates that they purchased inVienna.

After hearing the choir's performance, there was a table that requested that they sing Happy Birthday to their grandmother, who was 94 years old! She said her secret to a long life was drinking lots and lots of wine!
