On 25th July Douglas Bostock and the Southwest German Chamber Orchestra were finally able to perform again for a live audience, after several months of musical isolation. It was a great experience for those who attended the two sold-out concerts and for the musicians with the conductor alike. Glorious, sunny skies over Bauschlott Castle, north of the orchestra's hometown of Pforzheim provided the wonderful setting for this emotional musical encounter. The publisher, J.S Klotz Verlagshaus, was the most excellent host of this memorable day. The concerts marked for Douglas the end of a month of intensive and fulfilling activity with his orchestra.
