Franciska's Review:

Yet another delightful evening of music put on by my girl's school and I was rather sad that this will be the last performance of her Intermediate school years.  But what a spectacular note to end on!  (No pun intended.  Well, perhaps a little.)

I was insanely impressed with the Handbell Group and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the String Ensemble to inject beautiful live music at your next function.  These are some incredibly talented musicians ~ with many having already passed their grade 8 music exams by the tender age of 12 or 13.  Truly remarkable.

Of course, the Choir were sensational too ~ despite only having four rehearsals to learn tonight's repertoire.

The programme itself was a good mix of classical, contemporary, and Christmas music.  Just the right balance of variety to please everyone's tastes.
