Skibbereen Town Hall – Apr 2024

The newspaper article says most of it but here are just a few of the comments we’ve received:

‘It’s a triumph. You’ve won me over the Purcell!’

‘I really enjoyed the performance last night. Congratulations.’

‘Huge congratulations on all your hard work, it was a massive undertaking and a great project to be involved in.’

‘Congratulations for a fantastic musical endeavour. Kudos to all involved. You should be so proud’.

‘What a wonderful evening. The choir did you proud. Dido was magnificent and the witches got into my dreams!’

‘I thoroughly enjoyed it and so did (the rest) of a very apreciatve audience.’

‘I wouldn’t have missed it for the world! I thought I had no interest in opera but I was moved to all spectrums of the emotional scale. Laughing at the cherubs and witches, who were fabulous, to crying at the end.  I am in awe of you all!’

‘I just wanted to send you a note to say how much I enjoyed singing  with you, the choir and the ensemble. It was a really special project which culminated in a gorgeous performance of the opera.  Congratulations – I totally appreciate the amount of work for everyone involved over many months and it was a pleasure to join you for final rehearsals and performance.’

‘Please pass on my congratulations and thanks to all of the choir- they were so welcoming, the atmosphere was really lovely throughout the weekend and they sounded fantastic!’
