Sydney musician Sam Weiss has become the Composer in Residence for Sydney Children’s Choir.

Deine Mami is a poem written by Sam’s great-grandmother to her daughter Nelly on the eve of the Second World War. It tells of a mother’s love for her daughter, while also capturing the gloom and nervousness in pre-war Germany.

Deine Mami (Your Mami) was set to music composed by Sam and performed at the Sydney Jewish Museum.
