Our Gala Concert this year was a Movie Matinee. Following the success of previous concerts in this genre, this one again did not disappoint. With an excellent and enthusiastic audience the afternoon was jumping with Movie Magic.


We were delighted that Olga Eggert agreed to play with us, bringing the memories and atmosphere of the older films, ‘Brief Encounter’ (1945) and ‘Dangerous Moonlight’ (1941), back to life.  Recently having returned to the island we were again delighted that Nigel Harrison joined us playing the Clarinet Concerto from ‘Out of Africa’ (1985).


The Angelic voices of Sam & Lucas Hills-Field singing In Dreams from ‘Lord of the rings’ (2001) and the haunting sound of the solo violin , Juliet Tranter, playing the Theme from ‘Schindlers list’ (1992) brought a poignancy to the afternoon.


Thank you to all our soloists it was a fabulous Concert.


Joining us were the Manx Troopers who raise funds for the Wish upon a dream charity. Star Wars would not be complete without them. Thank you
