“…Just letting you know how much I enjoyed your concert on Monday.  I am actually lost for words to express what it all meant to me, but will simply say it was fantastic, and you and the orchestra, and the many others who would have worked so hard to make it all happen are to be congratulated.  The Town Hall is a wonderful venue, and the pre-concert performance by the organist added yet another dimension to what was an exceptionally entertaining and memorable day…”
