They took centre stage at the first ever Birmingham Proms, playing to an audience of over 2,000. Then they performed a ‘pre-tour concert’ at St George’s Church in Edgbaston before embarking on their first ever overseas tour to The Netherlands. The Orchestra gave concerts in Amsterdam, Monnickendam and Scheveningen, as well as visiting Utrecht and The Hague. The Orchestra did the University proud and were extremely well received by their audiences who gave them a standing ovation every night.
