    • Wonderful experience-talented musicians, great selection of music and venue was very comfortable!
    • Great selection of pieces, really enjoyed the commentary before each segment, and the invictus quartet played with passion and made it very engaging.
    • It was great! My husband is a big fan so I got us tickets in the A section. We had a whole row to ourselves on the side, and a perfect view just 3rows back from the front. Very very enjoyable. Hubby cried a few times. A few songs had all my hair stand on end. Really beautiful and moving. I loved it. I would go again!
    • Amazing performance by the Invictus String Quartet. I'm really glad I heard about this performance and went: beautiful candlelit atmosphere with even more beautiful music to enjoy. Would definitely go again and highly recommend it 👍
    • Both my wife and I really loved it but I do believe some advertised music was not played. Will see another show
    • Great selection. Well organised as usual. wonderful venue
    • Amazing venue, great performance, smoothly run
    • Absolutely magical, so happy I went, I will definitely be booking another one soon.
    • It would be nice if members of the audience remembered to keep quiet during the performance. Other than that the performance was amazing!
    • Classic setting, talented quartet...just not long enough.
    • I would have loved two more pieces… it was a little short! But spectacular
