“What a pleasure it was to listen to this talented group of musicians conducted by Wendy Marks, who performed a wide range of music from Alessandro Scarlatti, William Boyce, Franz Schubert, Bedrich Smetena and Irving Berlin. The concert, held in the Village Hall, included pupils of Wendy Marks as soloists whose ages ranged from 10 to 66 years on oboe, flute and clarinet.

Our sincere thanks go to Wendy Marks who not only conducted the orchestra but treated us to a beautiful oboe solo. Thank you to the members of the orchestra who, with Wendy, gave their time to prepare and present such a delightful concert.”

Jill & Ray Evans

"As someone who took up the clarinet two years ago, the Freeland Orchestra has given me
 the opportunity to play with other, more experienced players.
 It is a relaxed, friendly orchestra, and I am learning all the time, but most importantly, it's fun!"

 

Kathryn (Clarinet)
