Many thanks to all who have come and supported us since our beginnings in Sept 09.

If you had to choose just one day, what would it be?

Willow Foundation - "Days" from Marmalade Film and Media on Vimeo.



Horse riding, conducting an orchestra, driving a lorry - just a taste of what people living with serious illness choose to do given just one day is depicted in a new short film, Days. The positive and uplifting film for the Willow Foundation has been narrated by award winning actor John Hurt and features members of Harmony Sinfonia.






We are enormously grateful for the financial support received from the Ambache Charitable Trust www.ambachecharitabletrust.org for our upcoming concert celebrating women. The Trust is active in raising the profile of women composers by funding people who promote their music to the widest possible circle, with particular emphasis on historical women. The Trust was endowed from the sale of a Guarnerius del Gesu violin discovered by Nachman Ambache. The violin was restored by Peter Biddulph and loaned to the Vienna Phiharmonic Orchestra. It was sold in 2013, and Diana Ambache donated part of her share to the Trust, in order to further her pioneering work promoting music by women composers.

Many thanks to Ian Chown for the following review of this concert.

I have to admit to not having set foot inside St Mary the Virgin, Lewisham's historic parish church, before. It looked an interesting church from the outside, with a mixture of periods and styles of architecture - but not that large. Not large enough to contain a full-sized symphony orchestra and audience... or so I thought...more
