Congratulations Orchestra – you performed with superb skill, musicianship and style to the euphoric, ecstatic and enthusiastic “full house” audience.

From the full orchestral Rossini, Sibelius, and Verdi sound to the more intimate Mozart, Mascagni and Vivaldi pieces, the presentations were excellent.

The programmatic genre of the Ponchielle ‘Dance of the Hours’, Bizet Carillon and Copeland’s Hoe – Down were very well received by the audience and I must add, very well played and executed by the orchestral members.

Special thanks must be extended to Elizabeth and Emma for their excellent contribution in the Double Oboe Concerto, Warren for his Master of Ceremony words of wisdom and also Alex, – thank you for your splendid and outstanding leading.

The concert at Coolum Civic Centre on May the 7th was indeed a huge success – thank you everyone!!

Adrian King
