Mathilde Santing was the performer of the night. I had never heard her live, as we were hearing her beautiful voice and we were telling each other what a good singer she was, many other visitors apparently did the same during her second song. She was not amused by the noise but she extended her message too long and gave great depth to it. Then we were not amused. She continued singing like nothing had happened. But unfortunately for us the public it was not completely the same.
The gala gathered a high amount of money for all the voluntary activities of the Red Cross.
