What people are saying about us…

“What a thrill that concert was – ALL of it!… I was in seventh heaven during the performance of Magnificat for Turning… a SUPERB performance… brought tears to my eyes.”

— Donald Patriquin (2011)

“I listened to Winter Solstice with pleasure… stellar work with those opening chords… the quality that delighted me most was the sense of narrative… I think it is one of the most ‘loving’ premieres I have ever had…”

— Stephen Hatfield (2012)

“That was a very special concert tonight … a completely inclusive, unpretentious, deeply moving experience.”
