From the President:
A very big THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to all involved with the Mahler Project. It was a daunting challenge, but the members rose to the challenge with our friends from Albany Sinfonia and Philharmonic South West. I would like to acknowledge the behind the scenes work from Julian and Cynthia without whom the trip would not have been the triumph it was, and to David for his patience when dealing with amateur musicians and for continuing to provide leadership to our orchestra. It was because of David’s passion for this project, the hard work of the other conductors (Nev Talbot-AS and Dr Eva-Marie Perissinotto-Mandurah Choral Society) and the dedication of the members of the contributing ensembles that this project was fun and successful. There is already talk about when the next event will be… Let’s just say it won’t be soon, sorry.
