When I arrived home this email was waiting for me. From the Imago gathering at St Peter's Cathedral in Vienna. Photograph taken at the social after the musical and poetry performances ended. Ilse Pauls is on the right, Paul Jentz is on the left and accomplished Celloist, Irina Smirnova, is center. A Painter , a Musician and a Poet. What a trio.
On the Road with Jesus by Ilse Pauls,
translated by Angela Simek
Irina Smirnova is a member of The Twins Quartet, which is an exceptional Russian string quartet. The Twins Quartet was founded in 1998 at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow under AV Galkovsky ("Shostakovich Quartet"). Members include Elena Issaenkova, 1st violin, Tatiana Issaenkova, 2nd violin, Elena Alexeeva, Viola and Irina Smirnova cello .
Paul Jentz is a Loyola College-Chicago Cum Laude Alumni (as of May 9, 2014). He has just received his first Catholic Church/Chapel commission for a selection of scenes to be of approximately 3ft x 70 ft when complete-if I have understood correctly. I'll hold the paint brushes for him.
This is the first of Vienna Imago group "bios". Look for more in the upcoming weeks. I've listed some information on the USA-related branch in April and in August 2014, blog archives.
