The NCO is a community orchestra here in Canberra that I quite like. Patrick in the violin section is a good friend and I've been getting to know a number of the other players.
Patrick has just forwarded the 2007 programme to me so if anyone in Canberra is interested, check beneath the cut.
It turns out I'll be in New Zealand when they do the 1812 with things going Boom! courtesy of Questacon and the Excited Particles. :(
OTOH, I'll be in New Zealand so I think I'll get over it easily enough. :)
