For over twenty years Roy Teed was President of the Colchester Symphony Orchestra. His encyclopaedic knowledge of music would frequently come to the fore when discussing programmes. For many years he wrote the programme notes for our concerts and these notes have been very kindly passed on to us for future use. Roy was involved with generations of music students in London and Colchester. In 1977 he became a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music. He had also been invited to teach piano at the Colchester Institute and some 36 years ago he established the Roy Teed Cup for Composition at the Institute; the Cup is still being awarded. We will always be grateful for Roy’s encouragement and support for the Colchester Symphony Orchestra over so many years. But we will miss his typical ‘bravo’ at the end of a concert.

Our soloists for the Brahms double concerto are Martyn Jackson and Rowena Calvert. Legendary violinist Ida Haendel described Martyn as “one of the most exceptionally gifted violinists I have ever encountered.” As a soloist, he has appeared with the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra and Berliner Capella. In addition to his solo concert schedule Martyn now leads the Allegri Quartet.

Rowena Calvert, Artistic Director of the Hertford International Concert Series, has performed in the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall and Queens Hall, as well as making appearances at both the Manchester and Kronberg Cello Festivals. Rowena has recently enjoyed touring as part of the band for Has Zimmer and also Nigel Kennedy.

Debbie Rogers was born in Ipswich and has spent most of her life in Suffolk. She studied flute at the Royal Academy of Music Academy with Derek Honner, and then continued her studies with M.Caratgé in Paris for a year. Following this she returned to Suffolk and formed various chamber groups including the ‘Berners Ensemble’ and the ‘Orwell Ensemble’. She is principal flute with Wolsey Orchestra, the Kingfisher Sinfonietta and, of course, the Colchester Symphony Orchestra.
