USSO performed three concerts this year, one in Scotland and two in Belgium. We were honoured to be playing in the beautiful cathedrals of Liege, and St. Mary's Edinburgh before our week culminated at the music festival of the prestigious Gauthier Louppe Violin Makers School in Marche-en-Famenne. Standing ovations, three great audiences, and one news item on TV Lux here!:
