The reviewer for our concert on 15th June 2024, David Burridge said "An outstanding concert under the direction of Rupert Bond - a sure-footed conductor with a creative vision that suits the orchestra well. With the orchestra led so skilfully by Flo Peycelon, this inspirational leadership team set the bar high."

"Not many would have known Arutiunian's Trumpet Concerto written in 1950 but the astonishing performance by the soloist Sasha Canter will have left an indelible memory.  The Trumpet became his dance partner as he moved around the performance space in such an amazing way.  The orchestra knew they were part of something extraordinary and performed the expansive score with sheer joy." 

"Rachmaninoff's 2nd Symphony was a perfect choice to allow the orchestra to perform a work on a massive scale.  The 2nd movement saw the finest playing of the evening and by the 4th movement the orchestra were on top form with the full ensemble sounding very impressive.  The clear and confident direction from Rupert Bond gave the orchestra the confidence to perform the music well.  Well done to the orchestra for putting on such a brave and satisying programme!
