“A wonderful day for the whole family” (Manhiua)

“This has been a brilliant event. The chance to get a conducting lesson from Matthew and the very helpful quartet was special. But being able to conduct the orchestra, exhilarating. All the more because I was allowed to do the Figaro overture – a favourite. Please do more in the future!” (Wayne)

“It was the most magical thing I’ve ever done with my children in London” (Emily)
