This is a very good group of players, who are currently under the direction of Bill Eddins, His tenure is drawing to a close and so a new conductor will be chosen soon. ESO has a great reputation and definitely gets the job done!

We really enjoy the performances we attend. There is lots of variety and we have always found it uplifting! In the past our children have always enjoyed the Symphony for Kids performances and now our grandchildren are enjoying them.
