In place of our planned memorial concerts to Martin Binks, the orchestra has produced an online video of Edward Elgar’s “Nimrod”.
Players recorded their own parts at home, and these have been brought together into the final video.
We hope this is a fitting tribute to Martin despite the current difficulties, and that the online performance is a testament to the power of music and friendship in times of adversity.
