Concert review: 9th March, 2024

Some Audience feedback on the concert 

I think the evening was exceptional value for money considering the standard of the musicians and especially the soloist Hans Christian Aavik.

It’s quite expensive but I can manage that now – and I think there was reduction for young listeners? Would be great to attract more diverse audience

Tickets prices are very reasonable compared with other forms of entertainment.Brandon Hill Chamber Orchestra’s performance was brilliant – they performed with complete accuracy and there wasn’t a single mistake or wrong bow direction (I’m a violinist!) Hans Christian Aavik was a joy to watch. The whole evening was captivating.

Good to hear rarely performed pieces, they obviously are happy to do this.
Music was outstanding. I am in awe of the talent of these musicians.

Orchestra sounded even better than usual to me , despite parts of the orchestra telling me that there were quite a few errors. None that I was aware of.

Soloist was absolutely brilliant, as was the conductor.

Outstanding in every way: pre-concert drink, seat easily accessed, ticketing very straightforward.

Really liked the contemporary first piece – beautiful lines for cellos. Violin concerto was beautiful with young charismatic soloist. Neilson symphony was great to watch and new to me, not sure I fell for it – but enjoyed it. Fab acoustics .

Stunning Orchestra, extremely talented solo violinist. Really loved the whole experience – venue was great!

Went to the first Brandon Hill chamber orchestra concert in 1987, followed their ups and downs since, they are in a different league than other amateur orchestras or supposed professional commercial ensembles.
