Future Concerts in 2020 - Important Announcement

It is with deep regret that the Orchestra Committee has now taken the decision to cancel our final concert of the season, on 31 May.  Weekly rehearsals are also suspended until further notice.

These are difficult days for everyone, but we will come through this and be able to resume our music-making together. Meanwhile, we wish everyone good health and stay safe.
