Fabulous feedback from the IVO's performance at Liberty Festival in Croydon earlier this month. The orchestra partnered with Rachel Gadsden who painted as she was inspired by the music. "Something joyful can result from a collaboration of cultures, reflecting the Liberty Festival's message that art must be for everyone". Full review here - https://insidecroydon.com/2023/09/08/taking-liberty-with-the-arts-in-a-way-that-celebrates-us-all/. In the words of Kevin Satizabal, pianist with the IVO "a magical night".
