“Being able to absorb a concert is a wonderful experience and when I understand the background to the composition of a piece of music and how it fits in historically, it becomes a far richer occasion. Good program notes not only inform a performance, they can also become a great momento.”
Mary Borland, Sydney Symphony concert goer.
