On Sunday, Hereditary Princess Sophie attended the final podium concert of the season, under the direction of Maestro Graziano Mandozzi. The event recalled the contributions of founder Lotte Schwarz, whose memory was honored during the concert with flowers set on an empty seat. (Ms. Schwarz passed away in November of 2015, and both Princess Marie and Hereditary Princess Sophie attended a memorial concert for her last December.)
The Hereditary Princess also handed out diplomas and prizes, with all competitors granted ex aequo (or "equally placed") status; the Maestro noted that the Jury chose a "democratic" route for this podium concert by essentially giving everyone first prize.
