"I have known the friends of the orchestra longer than the orchestra itself: my parents have been friends for years, since well before I myself first played with the orchestra. Very special that so many enthusiastic fans are so involved with the orchestra, a beautiful mutual friendship."

- Jasper Grijpink, clarinet
