COMMENTS FROM SCHOOLS

"This is a wonderful support to the school’s educational work in getting students interested
in music both as an audience and as active musicians themselves."

"Students would rarely have the chance to hear such professional singing and piano playing. Lots of enthusiasm, laughter and silence when listening. Students enthralled."

“It was a superb performance – very professional and at the same time highly engaging for the students as the group explored the history of music in one hour.”
