  • Fantastic evening out. Wish it had been longer. Was a great atmosphere and the four musicians were amazingly talented.
  • Whole family absolutely loved (from 5yr to 77yrs of age). Looking forward to attending another concert.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Phoenix Collective brought me to tears and laughs. Never imagined that I would get the opportunity to hear Hans Zimmer's music live in such a way. Truly unforgettable.
  • Lovely to hear live instruments again! Phoenix Ensemble are very good.
  • More of this in cbr please!
  • Fantastic concept, so affordable and accessible for a non musical type and have recommended to friends and family in other cities, would love to go to the next concert!
  • Performers were great and the selected music scores were fantastic.
  • It would've been great to end on Time by Hans Zimmer (from Inception). Otherwise, we had a great time
  • Brilliant
  • Wonderful performance. Beautiful music, stunning environment, and excellent audience engagement. It's great fun to hear music from films/TV that we all know and love. I can not recommend this experience enough. Definitely worth your time.
