Despite the Corona lock-downs we managed to perform on Sunday 11 July, at the opening concert of the Openluchttheater Thorn. Despite the short preparation time, the brass and woodwind ensemble were able to present a beautiful concert including the Serenade by Antonin Dvořák. In addition we managed to perform with our full orchestra in theater Kerkrade on December 5ht. After 20 months we were finally able to perform the rehearsed program including the 8th symphony by Antonin Dvorak in front of a very enthusiastic audience!
