"The concert was an outstanding success.
It is difficult to overstate the quality of the performance of the ensemble, or the enthusiasm with which they were received.
The programme was a superb choice of music, and the finale in particular was acclaimed with great warmth from the audience.
Each of the musicians expressed their talents with the utmost professionalism, sensitivity, and energy. It was a joy for all concerned.
I hope that the artistes themselves enjoyed the occasion as much as we all did.
I look forward to a repeat booking."

"I must say that we were delighted with Anna’s performance: she had clearly prepared well, responded enthusiastically during the rehearsal, and gave an extremely musical performance on all three instruments during the concert."
Orchestral Concert, Solo Wind Player
"Elliot was a real star! He was charming, helpful, and professional and his brilliant cello playing was the highlight of our wedding. He is a real ambassador for the Conservatoire."

"I just want to let you know that the three soloists that you sent to sing in our performance of Messiah at Oswestry were absolutely superb. Their performances were excellent in every respect, wonderful vocal quality, brilliant interpretation and on top of that what lovely people."

Wonderful vocal quality, brilliant interpretation and lovely people
"The audience was hugely appreciative, and the plaudits are still coming in. Please pass on my thanks to their teachers; they can be really proud of these wonderful students."

"Just back from the Elgar Birthplace, where I went to hear the Conservatoire quartet play. They did you very great credit: fine playing with great beauty of sound. I was delighted to be introduced to Coleridge-Taylor’s five Fantasie-Stücke. He had a really individual voice."
Event, String Quartet
"Our choir heard about the possibility of hiring students from the Conservatoire as soloists, so we thought we’d give it a try. We were delighted – I wouldn’t have known that they weren’t professional soloists with years of experience “on the circuit”. They presented confidently and have become firm favourites with the local audience. More importantly, they were well prepared enough to cope with the problems that inevitably cropped up when the only rehearsals we had with the orchestra were on the afternoon of the concert. All of this applies whatever the repertoire, well-known or new. As a result, they’ve become our “default” option when looking for ensemble soloists, and we look forward to many more young soloists coming from what is obviously a great training ground."
