KCLSO Tour 2017 – The Rhineland, Germany

KCLSO have just returned from a fantastic tour thanks to the organisation of our Tour Managers Dom and Ellie. We performed Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol, Nielsen Flute concerto performed by the brilliant concerto-winner Stefan and Dvorak’s New World Symphony, three nights in a row across the Rhineland, Germany. Thanks to the enthusiasm and fantastic playing of KCLSO orchestral members, the musical direction of Jonny and wondrous assistant conductor Igor, Lia and her brilliant committee, KCLSO have finished the 2016-17 Season on a high-note and are excited for what lies in store for next year.
