Let 2014 begin…

Very nice start of the year with the Wiltshire and Swindon Youth Orchestra and brilliant Tim Redmond performing Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Today’s rehearsal was so inspiring, loved seeing these kids (mostly under 18) being so creative and enthusiastic. Concerts tomorrow and Saturday, can’t wait.  at Wiltshire Music Centre
