What People Say About Us

"It was a privilege to have sat at the front and to have had the opportunity to be that close to some quite brilliant musicians. The money raised will have a significant impact on the work we do with adults with dual sensory impairments and profound multiple needs."

"You are amazing! Nothing I can do or say will be good enough for what you have done for Harlow and the Homeless Centre. You will be pleased to know that, thanks to you we raised £4,000 for the Homeless Centre, a terrific amount of money.  The orchestra gave us an insight as to why they give their time to charities; they possess empathy, humanity and a love for their art. It was enthralling for all those that were lucky enough to attend."
