Just some of the feedback we have had from our audience and supporters - thank you so much:
A great concert last Sunday, we did enjoy it. A well chosen mix, always good to hear Carmen, the Elgar unfamiliar but charming, and Sibelius 1st Symphony was wonderful, the orchestra took it in their stride - a lot of challenges for the woodwind and brass soloists which they rose to magnificently! Well done all.
My goodness, what a concert and what would it have been without the horns? A superb afternoon and a therapeutic way to celebrate Mothering Sunday.
The Namensfeier (“Nameday”) Overture was new to me and played with delicacy; the Siegfried Idyll almost moved me to tears, and the start of the Brahms 1 caught my attention and captivated me throughout the piece. Joshua Asokan conducted the programme with energy and commitment. Bravo Trinity Camerata!
Wow, we did it! Despite our leader catching covid this week and different members off for each rehearsal, what a fantastic performance. Wonderful to see the church full and with such smiles on audience and players faces.- Zoe
It was a fantastic concert, so many spine-tingling moments, I couldn't stop smiling. You really are an amazing group, and I love everything you do.
I defy anyone NOT to have thoroughly enjoyed today's concert
The best Trinity concert I've heard to date
The orchestra and soloist played their socks off!
The orchestra were wonderful, and I was delighted to have come as I've not heard this group before.
I couldn't take my eyes off the soloist, she was such an amazing 'cellist.
I cannot give enough praise to last Sunday's performance by Trinity Camerata. The selection of pieces blended very nicely. The playing was superb and the overall balance (or mix) for so many instruments was outstandingly good. Just right. Not forgetting the conductor and guest cellist who played their part in making it such an enjoyable afternoon / evening. Many thanks.- Brian
Blow winds, and crack your cheeks! Rage! Blow! You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout…! Well, the weather outside St. Edburg’s church last Sunday might have reminded us of King Lear’s dark and stormy heath, but inside all was sweetness and light, as Trinity Camerata presented a wonderful programme of Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven. Not that the music didn’t sometimes reflect the elemental forces intermittently battering the roof: the surging energy of the Eroica symphony reminded us that Beethoven’s musical imagination could reach almost superhuman levels of energy and intensity. What a great piece that is; and how lucky we are to have an orchestra in Bicester prepared to work so hard to perform it! We are also lucky in that the Camerata benefits from Making Music’s Philip and Dorothy Green Award for Young Concert Artists: this scheme enables us to enjoy the playing of some outstanding young soloists - and on this occasion the superb cellist Indira Grier joined the orchestra as soloist in Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations. Her effortless virtuosity and passionate commitment to the music was an absolute delight: she clearly has a brilliant career ahead of her. Despite the foul weather, the concert was very well attended, and the audience expressed their appreciation wholeheartedly. I’m sure we are all grateful to the members of the orchestra for being willing to give of their time and talents so generously in order to keep great music alive and to make sure that it remains an exciting part of the cultural life of Bicester!- Nigel Timms
The best concert the orchestra has ever put on!
I especially liked the concerto, which I hadn’t heard before. Gorgeous! Especially the slow movement - I’ve rarely heard such sensitive accompaniment of the soloist, even from professional orchestras.
Emma was awesome! Wonderfully sensitive playing, the most beautiful sound and incredible technique - just Wow!!!- Tina Gandy
What a fantastic concert, the best ever. The singing made the rafters ring, and I actually felt the percussion vibrate through the pews during the Hallelujah Chorus.
I had a truly wonderful time performing with such a fabulous orchestra and for such an enthusiastically appreciative audience! Please do keep me in mind if you ever require a violin soloist again!- Alex Lomeiko
An amazing concert, and so good to know that this orchestra is our local one!
What a way to spend a summer Sunday afternoon. Thank you to everyone who was involved, a fantastic group of dedicated musicians who played purely for the joy of sharing music with us.
Heartfelt thanks for an uplifting and sensational performance.
