Some comments received after this concert:

"Wonderful concert - I enjoyed every moment. Could have gone on for another 1˝ hours - I was mesmerised!. A wonderful tenor line. Nice balance. Super!"

"The concert was a splendid 40 minutes with a great programme and such committed singing. Hugely enjoyed it – and everyone who commented to me afterwards had had a wonderful time. Please forward our thanks to the conductor."
