I much enjoyed the concert on Saturday and must follow up Ola Gjeilo, especially having been introduced to his work with such an inspiring interpretation and performance.

Subject: Thank you so much
Message: We are spending the weekend in and around Bakewell and just happened to spot a poster for your concert in the Coop. We came along tonight and are so glad we did - what an absolute treat it was! The programme was excellent, the singing was wonderful, and your collaboration with Harlequin Brass was outstanding. Thank you for an exciting, inspiring and moving evening - the perfect end to our weekend.
We are from Cambridge and sing with a community choir just outside the city so we are very familiar with the music of Rutter and Chilcott. We are planning a summer break in this beautiful part of the country and really hope to get to your summer concert.
Thank you again, L and N

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the concert. Excellent programme, brilliant soloists and very impressive performance by the choir. My goodness, you have had a lot of very diverse material to prepare! Loved the Rutter and bowled over by the Brahms. Hats off to John Keys and your very professional conductors too.
Best wishes, A
