Testimonials & Reviews
In 2016 Mowbray Orchestra worked and performed the European premiere of Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin's latest work "The drop that Contained the Sea at the Harrogate International Festival which was then taken by Christopher Tin to London and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Cadogan Hall.
"The final song, We Overcome The Wind, was an outpouring of joy; a unanimous standing ovation evinced the sense of togetherness at the heart of this concert."
Claire McGinn - York Press
"I was also extremely impressed with the Mowbray Orchestra. Their efforts were second to none. With only a small selection of musicians... gave a powerful performance which cut through the voices and give us a brilliant musical narrative to spectate to."
Andrew Overfield, Harrogate International Festival, 2016
"Cleveland Philharmonic Choir is always pleased to work with Mowbray Orchestra. Their playing is of a consistently high standard regardless of whether the concert is in a local church or at a high profile event at the Sage Gateshead and the organisation is both reliable and friendly."
Cleveland Philharmonic, ChoirTees Valley, 2016
Throughout the whole concert the orchestra were just phenomenal... This was the first time that I had heard The Mowbray Orchestra play and I hope it will not be too long before I do so again!|
