Happy New Year!
We spent the first few days of the year on a rehearsal retreat to Snead, near Bishop's Castle on the beautiful welsh border. This also included the first performance of two of the four season concertos - Summer and Winter. We received some very positive feedback, and our audience are looking forward to hearing all four seasons soon.
September 7th 2017
Our first concert in our new formation at Keble College Chapel, Oxford.
We had an appreciative audience of over 100 who really enjoyed our programme
of Bridge, Arnold, Francaix and Seiber. This programme offers a great mix of serious, musically and technically demanding music in the Bridge and lighter, more humorous moments in the Francaix and Seiber.
A supper in the impressive college hall afterwards finished off a very enjoyable concert.
