21st December 2011
On Sunday 01 January 2012 at 6.30 pm, RTE Lyric FM will broadcast the National Symphony Orchestra New Year’s Day Concert entitled “Vienna City of Dreams”. Apart from enjoying Strauss family favourites, including waltzes, polkas, mazurkas, and the beautiful voice of mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught, listeners will have an opportunity to listen to a 20-minute feature on the late Monica Bonnie – the entertainer, percussionist and much-loved teacher and colleague at the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama. The feature will include some of the DIT Voices interviews conducted with Monica as she reminisces about her life as a performer from the age of 4, and the music scene in Dublin which saw her perform with visiting stars including Bing Crosby.
Please enjoy the memories of the late, great Monica Bonnie.
