Concert Season 2021 -2022


Our planned Christmas Concert was sadly cancelled at the last minute due to rising covid cases once again but we are looking forward to presenting some great music again during 2022. We begin with a wonderful Beethoven double bill for our March Gala Concert. For this concert we welcome Noriko Ogawa and Philip Smith back to Colchester.
