Thank you for a wonderful concert

What a wonderful evening of music at our concert on 29th November – we ended the year on a positive note! Thank you to our musicians, volunteers, audience and our Musical Director, Joannes.

Special congratulations to Lee Abrahmsen for her beautiful Mozart arias. There was lots of praise for Lee – her richness and clarity of tone, emotional connection to the music and stage presence. Bravo, Lee!

We very much enjoyed performing Beethoven’s 4th symphony, which is often overshadowed by his 3rd and 5th. The last movement was a speedy way to end the concert! Thank you and well done to all.

Thank you everyone involved in our concert on Friday, 14 June – our musicians, our Musical Director Joannes Roose, volunteers and of course our audience.

Bravo to Elyane Laussade for another brilliant performance – we loved being part of your epic mission to play every Mozart piano concerto. Surely Mozart has heard about it by now!

Our orchestra is made up of people from all different backgrounds, some with musical careers and others who value classical music as a hobby, but we all enjoy working together to share music with you. Thanks again, and well done to all.

Supporting Gatehouse

We have some good news to share about Gatehouse – the small department of the Royal Children’s Hospital that supports children and adolescents who have been sexually abused.

Using donations from our concerts, they can now continue providing an early intervention program that helps children, young people and their caregivers in the days following a traumatic experience.

The program has had great success in reducing the development of PTSD, teaching coping skills, addressing practical needs (safety, legal, medical) and assessing the need for long-term treatment.

Thank you to all our supporters for helping Gatehouse deliver such an important service in the community.
