We had our second concert last Saturday and were delighted to see so many in the audience. Thanks to all our musicians who gave a wonderful performance with only one rehearsal on the afternoon of the concert! Claire Taylor gave a beautiful rendition of the aria “Parto, parto” as well as leading the 2nd violins for the remainder of the concert. Thanks also to our volunteers who provided teas and coffees throughout the afternoon and at the interval, fed the orchestra between the rehearsal and the concert and looked after front of house. We have had some lovely feedback regarding how much both the musicians and members of the audience enjoyed the concert and, in addition, we raised over £1,000 for Marie Curie!
