Southern Stars

Deborah Wai Kapohe.Hot on the heels of the Proms concert, with only three weeks to rehearse, we are ready for the Southern Stars concert! I think the little bit of pressure was a good thing - everyone must have done their homework because you know what? We've been sounding really good during the last two rehearsals. Yes, there was some polishing to do, but on the whole you could see David was happy. Marc Taddei was quite pleased too when he heard us on Tuesday this week.

So come along one and all and get your friends to come too - this concert, presented by the Southern Sinfonia, is going to be a smash hit!
