"Judging by the applause in the theatre, everyone had a fantastic evening. Members of the orchestra waited by the stairs to meet their friends and fans and there was a real buzz in the air.

It was a wonderful example of how music can bring a community together and I have no doubt that the CRSO will always be able to find an audience here."
