  • Great experience. The music and the venue was beautiful. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a new date night idea. My only criticism is that the speakers could have been louder as the stage was decently far from the audience.
  • beautiful venue. great job with the candle decorations. wonderful performance from the musicians. would have liked for the volume to have been a bit higher.
  • Fantastic! Range Ensemble was great, and the set list was awesome! They played lots of our favorites; Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Westworld, Willy Wonka, and more!
  • This was one of the most magical experiences ever!!! We got to listen to all the sci fi movie and tv scores and it was incredible! Listening to the music while watching the candles glow is hypnotizing!
  • Musicians amazing. Good pace. Loved the order they picked for the pieces they were playing. Wish it was louder somehow

  • Very beautiful venue. A few technical hiccups but was with the slight delay and the musicians are all so talented
  • The setting was magical though the audience was too far from the performers. And, for this kind of music, it should have been amplified more. Still very enjoyable!
