Miriam Hyde’s Centenary

February 1, 2013

Strathfield Symphony Orchestra will be celebrating Miriam Hyde’s centenary year with performances of her much loved Second Piano Concerto on 23 and 24 March. Miriam played the concerto with this orchestra until she was in her 90s and our association with her goes back to 1969 when the orchestra was formed.
