Concert on the occasion of the Day of German Unity
This year the third of October falls on a Sunday and we cannot wait to celebrate this important day in history with you. We have brought it forward to kick-off Australia’s most German Week at Mercedes Newstead this year! We will celebrate the Day of German Unity, celebrated as German National Day, with a unique concert by the Queensland Youth Orchestras partnered with Opera Queensland and our emerging talented German Youth Choir. Thirty-one years on, we celebrate in commemoration of the anniversary of German reunification in 1990. This day celebrates a reunited Germany, now consisting of 16 states and a population of more than 82 million.
We have again chosen our local landmark to be illuminated in the German colours on Sunday, the third of October.
Last year on this day across Australia all German Missions celebrated the 30 year anniversary by illuminating a landmark in each capital city! You can find all photos in our 2020 Gallery. #germany30
