New Year, New plans

 
We achieved a lot in 2021, inspired by the challenges we faced: our 30th anniversary concert with spectacular Mozart in June, wonderful performances of The Weekend in September, a terrific shared concert with our youth choirs in November, and a fun folk gig with the English Acoustic Collective for Christmas. For 2022, we are moving up to the next level starting with a project called EV Mixtape in February, a programme of short, snappy pieces of many styles based on the themes of love and togetherness, followed by some Bach in April and a collaboration with Carnyx Brass that will take us to Edinburgh in June.
