Ada Raynor and Stephen Zantiotis talk about the history of the City of Wollongong Symphony Orchestra and reminisce about their many experiences. Ada remembers the concert staged in the Town Hall for the launch of the Conservatorium. One of the items was a Concerto with four pianos on the stage at once and was conducted by Jim Powell. Ada didn’t actually play in this concert but attended.
“We regularly had top international artists as guests” – Ada Raynor
