A Viennese Christmas

I have just attended a most wonderful, joyful concert by the Jablokov Family with Claudia Boyle (Irish soprano) and Seán Costello (Irish tenor) in the Wexford Opera House.  The ensemble is led by Vladimir Jablokov, with his father, mother, 4 brothers, his sister (piano), and 4 non-family members. The family come from a Russian family of professional musicians.
The concert consisted of over 2 hours of traditional Viennese favourites and Christmas Carols. The large audience was thrilled and gave the performers a wonderful reception. We certainly got our money's worth tonight. And didn't have to suffer Marty Whelan's "jokes" as on Lyric FM!!

Leader (Vladimir), Soprano, Tenor, and rest of the Jablokov  family.
