Wilhelm Hermann Söns (Tenor 1)
Born 22nd February 1937, Germany
Died 9th June 2014, Adelaide
Willi joined the choir in 1954 aged 17, and at the time of his death was the ALT's longest serving member. Over the years he developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of the choir's history, and amassed a huge collection of stories, anecdotes, memories and snippets about past members, songs, events and general knowledge. His passing has left a huge hole in our ability to recollect and reminisce over past events.
Willi joined the choir at a time when his father, Willi Sr, conducted the Liedertafel. The influence and service of father and son to the choir has been immense, and we owe them both a huge debt.
Willi was a fine tenor, and travelled with the choir on all its overseas tours.
We mourn their passing
