It’s hard to believe that our tour to Spain is already three months behind us! We all have fantastic memories not only of all the wonderful performances but also the amazing culture and history in such a fascinating country.
Francesco Lecce-Chong said it so well when he wrote to the Orchestra members: “Congratulations on an amazing tour of Spain! I’m just so proud of you all that the right words escape me at the moment. In retelling the story of the tour to others this summer, no one can believe that we succeeded with a program so technically demanding and artistically intricate. And if they’d heard how fantastic you actually sounded in concert, I doubt they’d believe their ears! You earned every bit of the enthusiastic response from the audience and I could tell how deeply your performance affected every listener. Thank you for all your hard work and professionalism – it was truly one of the most memorable experiences of my life!”
