Spring concert by the seaside
Posted: 5 April
Thank you to all performers, helpers and not least to our wonderful audience. We had a great time performing in Exmouth, our nearest seaside town and the folk at All Saints Church could not have been more welcoming. The fish and chip shop just across the road was also a big hit with the players - and our conductor! Our soloist Piotr Kopec showed off his amazing skills in the SaintSaens violin concerto and the Tchaikovsky Pathetique was a moving and fitting finale. But perhaps one of the most powerful parts of the concert was the playing of the Ukrainian National Anthem and the fact that our audience gave so generously to the Ukrainian cause. We raised an amazing £485 which has already been sent to help all those affected by the devastating war in Ukraine. Many, many thanks to all involved.
