As part of the wide ranging and brilliant October Lancaster Music Festival, the Haffner Orchestra gave a rousing performance that was both interactive and interesting. This was the first appearance at the helm for our newly appointed musical director, Alex Robinson, and he took the opportunity to share and explore the magic of Mozart's 40th Symphony in G minor with the festival goers. He broke the music down and then built it back together again, adding a dusting of history to put it all into context.
The Orchestra played beautifully and to a big crowd of intrigued shoppers, music goers and new converts. The icing on the cake? That very many of the audience took up the challenge to conduct the orchestra. And they did so with gusto! Together we created a hugely enjoyable afternoon of live music. Bravo!
