Just before Christmas, to say thank you to our many supporters, the SBO gave a free concert at the Epping Club to which many guests were invited including a number of VIPs. An unexpected group of guests was a TV crew from Harbin in Northern China, who the SBO caught up with during our Beijing concert tour earlier in the year. Harbin was almost a Russian colony in Northern China at the end of the 19th Century during the building of the railway. It is also where our musical director Victor Serghie was born. The SBO has already done a concert tour of Harbin. So if anyone was thinking that maybe Victor & this crew might be plotting a return visit by the SBO sometime in the next couple of years, they would be ‘on the money’!
