Really easy to book - Simon responded quickly, arrived when he said he would and played the chosen piece beautifully. Excellent value for money. Stress free which (as booking was for a funeral) was much appreciated.

Dear Simon, I just wanted to thank you for performing in the Reza Community Orchestra concert yesterday - the beautiful tone of your oboe and the beginning phrase of Gabriel’s Oboe is still going around in my head! Such a huge joy - thank you! Look forward to seeing you again in March. Best wises, Hannah Managing Director Ensemble Reza
