About the Event 

One of the best and most enjoyable concerts I have ever seen.

Although we were in restricted view seats it was a most enjoyable concert, our first visit was definitely a wow !

Such sensitive musicianship from orchestra and soloists alike

Loved the show.

Fabulously beautiful music, exquisitely performed to honour a wonderful man. Poignant, marvellous, tears in my eyes. Thank you everyone involved.

Although the competency of the performers was not in any doubt, we felt that the programme was a little turgid. As a memorial concert we felt that it was lacking in celebratory music. Looking forward to the next one which looks like a more interesting programme.

Loved the Faure and the Vaughan Williams. The male soloist for the Faure was passed (sic) it but the woman was very good – Pie Jesu so well controlled. The soloists for the Mozart were excellent but I don’t like the music itself.

A beautiful hall with marvellous acoustics. There was crystal clear sound in the gallery. I could identify individual players music whilst enjoying the richness of the whole ensemble. Very friendly, informative staff welcomed us in. The brand new light and airy extension is understated and beautiful. When the cafe opens soon facilities will be perfect except for the lack of a cloakroom. ( So four and three quarter stars really.)

About the Value 

£20 for centre front row seats? Good value?? 5 Stars

£20 doesn’t buy much these days so excellent value for money.

I bought a BB seat. Yes I couldn’t see everything but I was nearer the music than some at the back of the good seats and did not feel deprived at all.
