Patrice is a Lydian of 25 years standing - a founder member. For her, these have been years of learning, music appreciation and personal growth. She has enjoyed the tremendous sense of accomplishment on completion of difficult works, but she cites other benefits that Lydians should treasure.
Among these are the emotional support of which members are assured in times of personal crisis, the day to day networking and sharing - from recipes to tax and banking advice. She also deeply appreciates the laughter and fun, the wit and good humour that abound and that involve both the Musical Director and the Manager.
Patrice has played the role of Aurore in the opera 'Koanga' by Delius.
