Our President, Mrs Alexandra Holford DL, was present at the concert on 1 December 2018 and has written as follows:
so enjoyed this evening's concert. l
love Mozart's Requiem, a great favourite, and to be introduced to
Haydn, Mass in Time of War: a really very special evening.
Thank you to
everyone who made it such a success. I know how much hard
into the weeks of rehearsals! I have the next year's dates in my diary! Again thank you to everyone for a special evening; l think it was the best ever concert.
A Happy Christmas and New Year to all.
