The London Military Band arrived promptly and played with utmost professionalism. Their leader Alan Shellard was extremely willingly and eager to play what we wanted ... they were a great success.

From other customers:

Simon R, 3 years ago

Mozart Clarinet Concerto - A really impressive performance - fluent, musical and very imaginative without being too extreme. really good passagework and articulation

Gordon T, 4 years ago

Brahms Trio in A Minor - An excellent recital. The Brahms was played with consummate musicianship and a profound sense of the conversational elements. You produced a very lovely sound and the group's playing showed great integrity and emotional depth.
