Armina and Pene

Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship winners marry in New Zealand


On Saturday, 16 January 2016, Sol3Mio star Pene Pati and his soprano sweetheart Amina Edris married in a magical ceremony at the Villa Maria Estate in Mangere, New Zealand.

Pene won the Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship in 2011, and in 2013, Amina followed his lead by claiming the same prize with an equally sensational performance. Sydney Eisteddfod specialises in performance, not romance, but although a few real life love stories have blossomed on its stages as the first Aria winners to tie the knot, Pene and Amina have carved their names even more deeply in the chronicles of this historic competition. 

Delighted to receive news of union between these two remarkable voices, Sydney Eisteddfod congratulates the happy couple and wishes them a long and song-filled life together.
