Dear PYO Member

Thank you also all for working so hard at music camp this year.  I felt the two concerts on Saturday and Sunday were both magnificent.  Congratulations to all and, in particular, to our two soloists on excellent performances.

In addition, I would also like to thank Mrs McGovern who conducted the PYO in my absence.  I really appreciate the extra work that Mrs McGovern put into the rehearsals and concert and that the orchestra was so supportive of her.

We now have a busy remainder of the session with Perth Festival of the Arts commitments, PYO Tour and our usual Autumn concerts in Edinburgh & Perth.

The diary of rehearsals and concerts is as follows:

The Tettuccio Terme was built in the late 18th century by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Leopold of Habsburg – Lorraine, the son of the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa. The first three spas that were built were the Tettuccio, the Regina and Leopoldine. These three spas made Montecatini Terme famous all over Europe, and a favorite place for the rich and the royalty – including Verdi and Puccini.
