Monthly General Meeting held on 7th of May 2013
Speaker : Selwyn Klass & Tony Bentel
Two delightful and complete artists, in soul and spirit – talented storyteller Selwyn Klass and virtuoso stage and cabaret pianist Tony Bentel will enchant us, both in words and music, with reflections of their amazing life experiences and encounters.
Selwyn is a travel and culture journalist, with a long theatre and film history, who met during his career, kings and queens, interviewed legendary Oscar stars and beloved Hollywood and European Icons. “The Academy awards was one of the most thrilling experiences of my life” – as he often says. He presents “Moments in time” on Radio Today.
Tony Bentel is a pianist since the age of four and a performer since the age of 14! But he is also an architect who still teaches as a freelancer. He has appeared extensively as a singer, dancer, actor, musician for musicals, cabaret, fashion, TV and contemporary productions.
In 2008, the two of them met and established an artistic bond, that delights audiences on special occasions.
