Message from Maestro

Dear music lovers of the TSO.
This year it is 25 years that I give concerts with my beloved orchestra.
I feel like visiting my family now for so so long time. From the first moment I felt the warmth of the musicians and even now whenever I meet them I feel a big happiness inside me.
First as guest and later as principal guest and music director and now as lauriat conductor.
Our relationship is build on respect for the music and eachother.
During my music director ship we started to do Mozart mâtiné concerts which are til today part of the yearly programming of the orchestra something what makes me very proud as Mozart is for every orchestra part of theyr musical culture..
The Tso is an orchestra what has that culture and so a musical pillar to play many other composers..
Of course I look forward to perform this Mozart mâtiné with works all in D Major keys for you my dearest concert goers.
I hope to continue my contact with my beloved orchestra for many years to come.
Yours Hubert Soudant.
