Here are some audience reactions:
Thank you for a most enjoyable evening. It was hard to believe that the orchestra had been so recently formed and a tremendous tribute to their dedication. Of course, having such a leader (violinist) is a great bonus.
Triumphant OCO Spring Concert – very impressed and thoroughly enjoyed it – the Mendelssohn seemed to be the audience favourite!
My parents who came along to support us last night thoroughly enjoyed the concert & they commented on how much we’d improved compared to last year’s concert. My father was particularly complimentary about the woodwind!
My 7 year old son came and really loved it. He liked the flutes especially!
VERY WELL DONE TO YOU ALL. The orchestra has come on a very long way!!
