What do you enjoy most about being in the RSNO?
Most of the repertoire and listening to some fantastic playing.

Tell us your favourite RSNO story/memory so far.
The concerts (and rehearsals) at the beginning of May this year (2019) with our fantastic co-leader Sharon Roffmann directing. By far the most exciting and rewarding week of music-making for a long time. Also, any time Roger Norrington comes.

Do you have any hidden talents?
No hidden talents whatsoever, apart from making a reasonable risotto.
