Comments: Another full house - amazing. The RDC concerts just get more and more popular. Maybe because it is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with restaurant and bar facilities on hand! The star of the show was 11 year old violin prodigy, Emily, who played the solo violin part for the Sonata for Violin and Mandolin Orchestra. It was amazing! Thanks again to the RDC members for making this another wonderful event.

 An excellent shared concert where the KSHS guitar students joined us for a performance of Wolki's Suite No 2. The students, parents and teachers very much enjoyed the evening. A performance by ex-student Duncan Gardiner, now a profesional guitarist, capped the evening. It is always a pleasure performing with school students, and a way to introduce the orchestra to them so they can consider joining when they leave school.
