The Studios Rotary Club of Elstree and Borehamwood were proud to present the second Classical Extravaganza Concert featuring Elstree Mozart Players and Soprano Janice Watson. The orchestra consisting of 70 plus local musicians, plus world renowned Soprano, Janice Watson, gave a concert that could have graced the Royal Festival Hall. With financial support from Cllr. Morris Bright and Cllr. Caroline Clapper the Extravaganza concert was well attended, with the funding support received enabled us to keep costs very low, making it affordable for many in the community.
The Elstree Mozart Players 2020 season includes:
