Quotes from soloists & Conductor:
“I most certainly did enjoy the concert and particularly the choir's contribution. You and your colleagues sang those choruses better than the vast majority of choirs I've sung it with over the years, and your intonation and enthusiasm was exceptional. It was a real joy to listen to you. Do please pass on my congratulations to all concerned. Mike clearly knows what he is doing with you and I greatly look forward to a return visit if the opportunity arises."
- Susanna Spicer, Mezzo-soprano Soloist
Cheryl Enever (Soprano) said to me afterwards, “I thought you were singing out this afternoon [at the rehearsal] but tonight WOW!” Cheryl hasn’t sung with us before and when I told her we are un-auditioned she was so shocked she took a step backwards. That is praise indeed! "
- Val Wooff, Chair
HUGE congratulations for a truly magnificent concert last night, we sounded fantastic; it was mature, rounded and joyful, with a brilliant blend and confidence. It was such a treat to be back performing with a full choir and orchestra (hadn’t realised how much I’d missed it!). Absolutely everyone was full of praise (totally deserved).
