Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 23 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 24, 2008 13 WORLD YOUTH DAY The high notes ZILKA GROGAN Peter Jonas at the chimes (above) and on stage at the Domain event (below). IT never would have oc- curred to percussionist Peter Jonas that he would get so close to the Pope. The 18-year-old member of Sydney Youth Orchestra Philharmonic, who lives in Ashfield, performed in two World Youth Day events last week. He played the chimes in the Voices of Light per- formance at the Domain on Wednesday night. The chimes represent the church bells of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. He also performed with the Sydney Youth Orches- tra on Saturday as part of the evening vigil at Randwick Racecourse. At the Saturday perform- ance Peter came within metres of the Pope. ''I was speechless. I never thought in my life I'd come within 20m of probably the world's most important re- ligious figure,'' he said. ''My heart was thumping.'' The Sydney Conserva- torium of Music High School student has been playing with the orchestra for four years. He described the Domain performance as overwhelming. ''I'm used to performing to an audience who sit quietly [but] every time something special would come up on screen they would cheer and stand up,'' he said. ''I just found that to be very spiritual.''
