April 2018 - Salute to the Cinema

The concerts are always excellent but the "Salute to the Cinema" concert last night was exceptional. The orchestra has never sounded better - long may this continue.

February 2018 - Family Concert

Amazing kids concert - brilliant to involve the kids and let them get so close to the musicians. Thank you! We came as an extended family - 3, 5, 7 year olds plus guide dog puppy and two Grandparents! Nice mix of songs but the most magic was the invite to allow kids to wonder close to the players. I know my kids found that really interesting and I hope it will bring a life long interest in classical music. The only problem … how ‘boring’ other concerts will be in comparison!
Matthew Arrowsmith

Thank you, we had a great time.

Just want to say how much we all enjoyed the Concert on Saturday evening. The Orchestra was fantastic and we felt thoroughly entertained all evening.
Pat Stow

What a splendid concert - so hugely enjoyed by a mega audience! It was absolutely wonderful - and the star turn, of course, the pianist Can. We were in an ideal place to watch him playing with such confidence and without any music, at only just 17 it was magical. Can you please pass on our congratulations to everyone who took part. This is going to be a hard one to follow, but it looks as if this will be a wonderful evening as well and we look forward to it.

Thank you and the other Pelly musicians for a well planned and beautifully executed programme of music last night. You had clearly put a lot of time and rehearsal into it all, and the result was thoroughly enjoyed by our audience. Please pass on our appreciation to the others. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

The concert last Saturday was brilliant we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Janice Edmunds

Thank you for inviting Angela and me, as Vice-Chairman of Hart DC, to the concert last evening. We both thoroughly enjoyed a really interesting programme which was certainly a most uplifting experience. It was also nice to meet the very friendly members of the orchestra, both in the interval and afterwards. They all certainly appeared to enjoy playing themselves and I am sure that added to an outstanding performance. We will certainly be coming to some of your events in the future, diary willing. Many thanks and keep up the wonderful work you are doing.

I feel compelled to write to you to express my delight at your most recent concert on Saturday night.
 I particularly enjoyed the selection of music you played and thought your presentation was lively and lovely.
 I also thought your guest conductor was impressive and her passion and enthusiasm for the music was self evident and inspiring, what a fantastic job she did!
 Congratulations to all on a very enjoyable evening. Thank you.

Thank you for all you do, and the rest of the team and the orchestra.

Past comments

The current repertoire is an interesting mix – I wouldn’t want it to change!

Just a short note to say how much I and my three friends enjoyed the concert on Saturday - it was exceptionally good and the conductor brings so much to the performance with his knowledge and exuberance. A great evening out - looking forward to the next concert.

The success of the concert and feedback I have had from all those who bought my tickets has been tremendous and they want to come again.

At the end of the evening the atmosphere amongst the audience was really buzzing. So when the conductor announced that at the next concert we would be whizzing around the world in 80 minutes (phew!) I'm certain that like myself, most of the audience would have already made a mental note of this date.

What a great start to the New Year! My father and I thoroughly enjoyed last night’s concert and it has to be the best ever yet.
