Our opening concert went with a real swing - some fabulous music making enjoyed by a large audience - thank you all for your support. So-Ock played one of the best performances of the Mendelssohn you would be ever likely to hear - fabulous. The Sibelius symphony was passionate and very moving. Well done to all the players who put their heart and soul into the performance
Next February, our concert falls on Valentine's Day - so of course we could not pass up that opportunity. The concert will feature various pieces associated with joys and travails of unrequited love! Joining us will some wonderful young talent - Rebecca Taylor (piano), CÚline Forrest (soprano) and Oliver Johnston (tenor) - who are making quite a name for themselves on the stage. CÚline recently won a place through to finals of the Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2015 representing Wales. See our Concerts Page for more details.
We are thrilled that Internationally famed guitarist Craig Ogden (currently featured on Classic FM) will be coming to play the delicious Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. This will be next May, when we will also play some fun pieces by Richard Strauss and Shostakovitch.
