The Winter Concert at Victoria Halla was a huge success and played to a full house. We played a new piece of music called The Lewis Chess Suite which was writeen by Julian Ward - one of our flute players and arranged for orchestra by Lorna McLaren. St Michaels Church Choir joined us as did Pippa Reid Foster playing the harp.

LoCCO is very grateful to the SCOPS Art Trust ( for their generous grant towards the costs of preparing for such an exciting concert.
