23 September 2014
It is with regret that the FSO is saying "goodbye" to Tessa Welford after 23 years loyal service playing with the Orchestra, the last 6 of these being as Leader. Tessa, who over the years has also served the Orchestra tirelessly as Librarian and Chairman, is moving away from the area and will be much missed by the FSO. We all join in wishing her well in her new home.
For the November 2014 concert her place will be taken by Simon Waddington, a member of the First Violin section, who will be Guest Leader.
The FSO is also beginning the search for a permanent Leader. Applications are welcomed from good players and can be submitted using the online form on the Join the FSO page. For more information, please contact the FSO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
