From customers:

Audience C, 9 years ago

the concert was brilliant and innovative. We thought that the first half, with the presentation explaining how Beethoven composed the Eroica, and the way that you got the musicians to play their individual parts amongst the audience was thrilling, especially when I could hold the music for one of them! To hear the instruments playing their individual parts so closely and so expertly was a real joy. The final complete performance of the symphony was truly memorable.

Audience M, 9 years ago

Your presentation in the first half enabled me to get a much deeper feel about the symphony and I so liked the musicians coming out into the audience. I have never experienced anything like this presentation in all my years of concert performances. Thank you for a most entertaining and enjoyable evening.
