We were conducted by Ben Gernon who was very gracious and encouraging to us all. He has recently been a finalist in the LSO Donatella Flick Conducting Competition.
We played Beethoven, Coriolan Overture and Schumann Symphony No 3 ‘Rhenish’ (movements 1,2).
It was challenging but good fun. We did a performance at Queen's Cross Church, Aberdeen on Sunday 28th October The weekend rounded off with us giving a performance. Loved it all. The SCO are performing both over the winter. I shall be going.
There are more weekends coming up in March (orchestra and chorus) and May (Wind Farm).
