The Diocesan Alumnae Orchestra made its debut performance at the DGS Summer concert on 9th July 2016. The 2-month old orchestra comprises 29 alumnae members: 19 strings, 6 woodwinds, and 4 brass players. With the help of a few additional players in the various sections from the DGS Symphony Orchestra, we performed with much success Mozart’s Overture to The Abduction from the Seraglio, under the baton of Mr. Leung Kin Fung.
Some members of the Diocesan Alumnae Orchestra also played Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances with the DGS Symphony Orchestra as a finale to the evening. The evening also included as one of the highlights, Rachmaninoff's Variations on a theme by Paganini, featuring our alumna pianist Nicolette Wong.
We would like to express our thanks to the School for the support to the Diocesan Alumnae Orchestra.
After this debut, the Diocesan Alumnae Orchestra hope to hold at least one concert a year and welcome any interested alumnae to audition to join.
