From an audience member, after the 4 July 2021 concert
Many thanks. What a marvellous lot to manage such a concert under these terrible circumstances!
From a new player, July 2021
Thanks very much. I appreciate all the effort that went into being able to hold the event at all. It has been lovely to be welcomed into such a friendly group and I'm looking forward to returning in September!
From a recently-joined player, March 2021
Although it's been a challenging year, it has been one of making more music and friends than I expected.
Thanks for all the work put in behind the scenes. I have so enjoyed playing with you all - particularly the Mozart and Handel - but will really look forward to playing in person together. Never thought I'd say it, but Zoom is marvellous!
From an audience member, March 2020
We just wanted to thank the orchestra for their superb performance of Shostakovich's 5th symphony, yesterday.
It was tremendously moving, the orchestra just goes form strength to strength. And of course it was great to hear the very talented young Sharon Zhou playing Mendelssohn's violin concerto, - the first classical record we ever bought, back in the 1950s!
