The reviewers for our concert on 11th November 2023, Brinley and Janet Hughes said "This was another splendid concert by Folkestone Symphony that continues to mature in strength and ability under the orchestral leadership of Floriane Peycelon and conductorship of Rupert Bond. The customary large audience was a tribute to this very popular local orchestra showcasing the wealth of musical talent in the area. Rupert Bond conducted with exemplary clarity and direction throughout."
"It was wonderful to hear Bruch's less well-known Scottish Fantasy, performed with such flair and sensitivity by Korean-born soloist Joo Yeon Sir. The soloist was highly impressive with her lovely tone, and a beautiful singing quality in the slow sections which contrasted with her stunning virtuosity in the sparkling faster sections. The audience seemed spellbound as she played her soaring final cadenza leading to the works exuberant ending. The orchestra accompanied sympathetically, and the clever interweaving of Scottish tunes and interchanges between orchestra and soloist were well managed with a perfect balance."
