  • Really wonderful performance! We got seats in the A section, which was worth every penny. It was amazing to watch the musicians handwork. Wonderful mix of classical works and Christmas and nutcracker hits. The acoustics were great in the church. The candles are sadly the fake LED plastic kind, which I dislike, but I guess it makes sense. Hundreds of real candles would be super dangerous. All in all we really really loved it.
  • Excellent experience. Beautiful music and wonderful atmosphere
  • Really lovely. The soloist was exceptional.
  • Beautiful- what the soul needs this time of year
  • Truly amazing love it
