Quotes:


Don Giovanni:


“The orchestra, at one instrument per part, was simply heroic, and conductor Trevor Jones drew nicely sprung and well-paced playing” Barney Zwartz, The Age, 4th Sept, 2010 (Don Giovanni)


“Conductor Trevor Jones maintained fine control of all sections in shaping a fluid and meaningful result. Overall, the sense of unity of singers and instrumentalists was a key factor in the success of the performance.” Bronislaw Sozanski, Ballarat Courier, April 2012 (St John Passion)
