A word from our conductor Fred: "Symphonic music has always been my jam, especially later works with their raw intensity and emotion - Mahler is a firm favourite of mine! When preparing music I like to keep the rehearsals fun, fast and with that unbeatable sense of achievement when we've all put some extraordinary sounds together, and that's just what we do here in ChaOS! Come and join us for it!"
