It had been almost exactly 2 years since our last public concert! We were nervous, and the COVID clouds seemed to be gathering again as the date approached, but we got there and it was great.
The orchestra enjoyed being back in the lovely auditorium at Stapleford, and there was an exceptionally good audience turnout with hardly an empty seat.
We gave them a fine programme (see below), suavely compered by former Moonlight Rod Halls. It was particularly moving to finish the concert with a first live performance of our 2020 Xmas lockdown video carol, Personent Hodie.
