Superlative concert - Goa State Symphony Orchestra
Superlative concert

Prof Pheroze Mistry must be warmly congratulated for the excellent performance by Goa State Symphony Orchestra at Kala Academy’s D M Auditorium on July 29. The ensemble should have been called String Section of the Goa State Symphony Orchestra, which, as we understand, is under the baton of Prof Mistry.
The soloists in both the concerts did full justice to their respective parts. The orchestra was accompanied with verve and exuberance. The sound overall was rich, clear and expressive. In Vivaldi’s concerto, Prof Mistry both played the second violin and conducted the orchestra, which points to his concentration of mind combined with his artistic ability. Ashley Rego, who was soloist in the two concerts, was equally expressive and forceful in the solo passages of Albinoni’s Adagio in G.
Kala Academy must also be congratulated for this achievement. We can hope that in the near future we will have a symphony orchestra (with the winds added to the strings along with percussion).

Fr E Miranda, Panjim
