"I got there early, expecting to get a good seat, but the place was more or less full already. Not to worry - I heard every note from the back. A dazzling, most competent display - and what a piano! I thought, too, that the Orchestra was in tip-top form and performed beautifully throughout. You must feel very proud of all the players."
"Every concert just gets better and better"
"the orchestra has improved so much under your conductor"
"the whole concert was wonderful, every section of the orchestra was just marvellous, I've never heard you play so well".
Don Giovanni - Mozart
Email received 7/12/16 regarding concert 3rd Dec 2016 Don Giovanni;
'................. DG was completely fab, what a wonderful group of singers. Has this opera the highest ratio of prestissimo to any other tempi ? The orchestra did really well, I loved the trombones coming from the back ...surround sound indeed. The Commendatore in the final scene never fails to be a total goosebump moment. Saturday was certainly no exception. Totally joyous evening !'

Childrens concert 2015
'Just thought I would let you all know what a great event we enjoyed today. The children were truly engaged, what a wonderful event. I cannot think of a better way to present classical music to children. They are our future audience after all!
Thanks from me, and my stewards, for a truly great event and thanks to the orchestra. When can we have a repeat?
With thanks and very best wishes to Catherine, the orchestra and conductor (sorry I didn't have his email address).'
