What an amazing event we had on Saturday night at the Virtual Concert Party. Congratulations to those who bravely put themselves forward to perform – you all did fantastic. Thank you also to the 42 of you who were in the very supportive audience! It was so nice to see so many of you and we hugely appreciate your support. We’re thinking of putting on another one next month, so let us know if you want to offer a performance. We already have a few players interested, so do get in quick if you want to perform!  Here’s a few lovely comments we had from people:

Thank you for organising the concert party last Saturday. I’m always up for new experiences and that was certainly a first!

I really enjoyed the concert tonight. Thank you. I was considering joining the orchestra just before lockdown and after seeing you all tonight I’m now even more motivated.

I really enjoyed the concert party. It was the best way so far of giving a feeling of connection with those involved – because the performances were live.

Tomorrow sees another instalment of our Cobweb Orchestra Musical Book Club and there’s still spaces for you to sign up.
