On Thursday, September 17th, Townshend staff and students attended the opening concert of the South Bohemian Philharmonic Orchestra’s new season. It was an evening dedicated to the 20th century Russian composer, Dmitri Shostakovich. The pieces were so varied, that everyone found something to enjoy. Jazz Suite No. 1, Cello concerto No. 1 and the original soundtrack for the film Gadfly. It was a very inspiring venue and we will be looking forward to more to come! A big thanks to Mr. Jorge Cortés for organizing the logistics and making it possible for us to attend.
