Public Lecture: Sandwich Generation Matters
Demographic changes in today’s population, such as longer life expectancy and declining fertility rate, are responsible for the growing phenomenon of the sandwich generation – the middle aged layer individuals who find themselves responsible for providing multi-generational support to their aging parents as well as their children. It is a known reality that women are usually the main providers of care and support.
This presentation will outline the causes of this relatively new phenomenon and the various pressures and demands faced by this faction of society. The research compares and contrasts different situations and comments on possible coping strategies adopted by some of the research participants. The implications of enhancing the general well-being of middle-aged women in today’s society will also be addressed.

Vienna Boys Choir In Concert
The Vienna Boys Choir goes back to 1498 when Maximilian I (HRR) moved his court to Vienna, lock, stock, and choir, thus founding the “Hofmusikkapelle” (Chapel Imperial), and the Vienna Boys Choir. Over the centuries, the Viennese Court attracted great musicians like Isaac, de Monte, Fux, Caldara, Gluck, Salieri, Mozart, and Bruckner; Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn, and Franz Schubert were themselves choir boys. Until 1918, the boys sang exclusively for the court. In the 1920s, the choir was reestablished as a private organisation. Since 1926, 2482 Vienna Boys Choir has sung 1000 tours in 97 different countries. Gerald Wirth is its Artistic Director, and its president.
