Congratulations to Clara, Ella and Georgia Germein of the Germein Sisters band for being ambassadors for South Australia during the August 2014 trade delegation to Adelaide’s sister city Qingdao, Shandong Province, in China. The delegation highlighted arts, sport and education, celebrated our new Sister City Status and promoted our state’s best to Qingdao. The band was a highlight of the Australia China Development Company (ACDC) trade delegation.
ACDC invited the Germein Sisters to perform at the official Sister City Gala Banquet held August 11th 2014 in Qingdao and greatly surpassed our guests’ expectations by performing three songs in Chinese. They enjoyed a number of other performances in Beijing and Qingdao, gaining experience of the Chinese music industry and creating meaningful connections. The Germein Sisters major performances were at the Australian Embassy Beijing, the ACDC Sister City Gala Banquet in the Copthorne Hotel Ball Room, Qingdao and the International Beer Festival’s Tsingtao Beer Gala Banquet.
Clara, Ella and Georgia lent their support to two lead-up fundraising activities: Music + Fashion + Film a preview of the Qingdao Sister City Mission Tour (2nd July at The Promethean) and the Sports & Arts Preview “Utilising sports & the arts as a conduit for business” (23rd July, The Astor).
ACDC commends the Germein Sisters on their great talent, enthusiasm and collaborative spirit, natural entrepreneurship and diplomatic finesse ensuring they were honored brand ambassadors for South Australia.
