It was so lovely to go to a concert and hear different songs rather than the same ones each year.

Very moving; as I shut my eyes drifting, it was almost like the music touched my soul.

A lovely concert ... the sound was amazing.

A great evening thank you all. My friends really enjoyed the concert.

Such an enjoyable concert! Thank you Simon and Phoenix for excellent intonation and beautiful phrasing... loved it.....
