Sunday’s Brahms concert saw the end of an ERSO era – we had to say a fond farewell to Princiapal Cello Henry Hargreaves and Deputy Leader Penny James. They have played a huge part in ERSO’s recent years and helping us keep the orchestra going through covid. We are really going to miss them both and we wish them well on what we know will be succesful musical careers!
Penny is now living in Scotland and is excited to be working with Live Music Now Scotland which gives outstanding young artists the opportunity of performing at the start of their careers and enables high-quality live music to reach people throughout our the Scottish communities, especially those who wouldn’t normally have access to it. https://livemusicnow.scot/dashboard/artists/penny-james-matt-tighe-14538/
Henry is currently on trial for jobs at the London Symphony Orchestra, Ulster Symphony Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Welsh National Opera.
