Networx Utilities sponsoring Crosby Symphony Orchestra’s Olé, Olé, Olé concert

Networx Utilities are proud to be sponsoring the upcoming Crosby Symphony Orchestra concert ‘Olé, Olé, Olé’ on Sunday July 7th at The Tung Auditorium in Liverpool. Building on the success of last year’s sold-out performance, the orchestra returns with a program dedicated to Spanish classical music.
This concert will feature Joaquín Rodrigo’s celebrated guitar concerto, performed by Craig Ogden, who is recognised as “one of the most exciting artists of his generation”, as well as Maurice Ravel’s ‘Bolero,’ renowned for its association with the Olympic ice dance champions Torvill & Dean.
The Crosby Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1942 by a small group of amateur musicians, has since expanded to include approximately 60 members that come from a broad range of backgrounds and locations from all across the UK.
Jayne SaltersNetworx Utilities is especially proud of our Utilities Coordinator Jayne Salters, who plays the cello in the Crosby Orchestra and will be part of this brilliant event. Her dedication and skill in both her professional and musical roles speak volumes about her commitment to excellence.
“Ive been with the orchestra for nearly 5 years! The cello picked me – I was a musical child and when the musical instruments were given out at school, I wasn’t picked, but my mum pestered the headmaster to please give me something as I had a musical talent, so my school bought 3 new cellos and I got picked at age 7.
“The cello sound is most like the human voice and is very expressive, like myself, so I absolutely adore it. It took my along time to find the right orchestra, I associate it with family and pride and my mum and nan watching me at every concert. The Crosby Symphony is very challenging as they hold themselves to a very high standard. It took almost a year of watching before I got the courage to go along and play, but I couldn’t live without it now, it pushes and challenges me at every rehearsal. The discipline and high pressure to get it right is the environment I thrive in and feel very honoured to be a part of it.”
This concert will offer a diverse array of musical styles and is definitely not one to miss.
