What audiences say

Wonderful performance. Brilliant musicians. Fantastic singers. Unforgettable. Fantastic.

An experience that was out of this world.

One of the most beautiful and strangest (positively!) experiences in my life.

Wonderful performance by all, fluid and perfectly paced.

Wow! Mind-blowing stuff. Incredible orchestration, transformative experience.

It was a truly memorable performance. Thank you for bringing this to the Highlands.

Absolutely outstanding playing and singing – an exceptional experience, gripping drama. Huge credit to soloists, players, arrangers and conductor. We hope for more. Certainly one of the most memorable concerts I can recall.

Absolutely marvellous. Fantastic. Didn’t know what to expect. Totally first class, everyone.

A standing ovation, well deserved for a stunning performance with all the drama and grandeur of a much bigger group of musicians, so much ambition and attention to detail – and can only wait impatiently for the next chapter.

I’m not often moved to tears by music: this was one such occasion. There was no doubt in my mind that every player was entirely committed to the performance. Thank you for a deeply personal and intensely moving experience.

Out of this world. Quite exceptional. I feel privileged to have been here. A once in a lifetime experience.

Tremendous orchestra, tremendous singing – A revelation in the Highlands.

Phenomenal!! The power and the impact of a top-notch full orchestra combined with the intimacy of a chamber group.

I must have seen a complete Ring Cycle at least five times in my life and can honestly say that I have never been as excited by a performance as I was by yours last night.
