Our concert last Sunday (18th May) was a great success, despite one brief technical hiccup when the conductor’s electronic score stopped working. The orchestra, the Degani Ensemble, were very skilled and our soloists, Sara Di Bella and Ben Russell were excellent in the Mirror of Perfection. The choir sang very well, putting behind them any suggestion that they do not like syncopated entries; indeed, in the movement The Furnace the choir gave an exemplary display.
We were honoured by the presence of the Ms Grete Odegaard, the Deputy Head of Mission at the Royal Norwegian Embassy, and her husband Mr Even Klinkenberg. Ms Odegaard went out of her way to say how pleased she was with the concert and that she had been invited to attend.
