A Message from Wilma

 

Thanks to everyone who came along to our concerts this year. I wish you all a happy, safe and relaxing summer holiday and look forward to catching up again in 2024. Speaking of 2024, three beautiful groups and some wonderful programs are almost finalised. Early in the new year, the fabulously creative Agatha Yim will use her photographic and design skills to produce our 2024 publicity material which you’ll find around town and here online from February sometime. I’m excited about the new and old friends as well as the terrific range of music we’ll be bringing you! Meanwhile, please save these dates:

PS I’ll be having my longest-ever break from playing this summer (3 months rehab after recent right shoulder replacement surgery) and will be raring to go in 2024 with my new bionic bow arm!

Merry Christmas,

Wilma
