Thank you for a wonderful evening of music

Last night’s concert was a great start to the year – well done everyone! It was an ambitious program for only 6 rehearsals but we enjoy a challenge.

Bravo to Donna Coleman who made us feel very lucky to see her perform Clara Wieck’s Piano Concerto and then a beautiful encore. As always, thank you to our audience and volunteers.

No post-concert photos this time – we were too busy recovering from Schumann’s 2nd Symphony…

Mark your diaries for our next concert on Friday, 15 June 2018 – featuring soprano Lee Abrahmsen.

Congratulations and thank you

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in our concert last night! Congratulations to Elyane Laussade (pictured here with our musical director, Joannes Roose) for performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1 with such grace and control (and good memory… imagine how many notes there are in 40 minutes of Chopin). Bravo, Elyane! And Beethoven’s 5th was such a joy to play. What would we do without classical music? Thank you and congratulations to you all!
