Our audience will remember last year the wonderful Gala concert that the New Mozart Orchestra and Wooburn Singers put on to celebrate the Wooburn Festival’s 50th season. This year it has not been possible to organise a similar event, but we are delighted to announce that the NMO have received a grant to perform at St James’s Piccadilly in London on 26th October. More information will be posted here when available.
