It was a brilliant week. The brass section were made up of players from Kazakhstan, Russia, Australia and myself from Britain so there was a real mixture of us! The programmes for the two concerts included works such as Don Juan by Strauss, Stravinsky’s Firebird and Ravel’s Bolero.
There were a few British people who were flown out for the week and we stayed at the Chateau Windsor Hotel within easy walking distance along the coast to the National Centre of Performing Arts where we rehearsed and performed. During our time off we managed to eat an awful lot of amazing curry, experience the sights of the city of Mumbai and enjoy the climate. I had a wonderful time in India and hope I will be asked again as I’d love to see and do even more!
