Thank you for your support at our recent concert in which we performed Mahler’s Fifth Symphony.
It was actually the seventh in our series of Mahler symphonies, with only Eight and Nine to go. All the symphonies have been generously sponsored by Betrinac, and all proceeds from the concert will go to dementia charities. A sum well into five figures has already been raised though these concerts, and most recently a cheque for £3000 was donated to the Wrexham Memory Clinic at the Maelor Hospital in Wrexham. This resulted in the orchestra being shortlisted for an Arts and Business Cymru 2016 award.
It is always good to remind ourselves of that fantastic day back in May 2015 when the orchestra played Mahler 2 at Bridgewater Hall, Manchester. There is a gallery of photos by Mark Carline available to see here.
