What the critics say …

… about the Nottingham Chamber Singers (formerly East of England Singers): Always noted for their dynamism, they surely exceeded even their reputation for razor-sharp ensemble and musical muscle.

… about the Nottingham Festival Chorus: First-class choral singing, well balanced and with a depth of understanding which brought every line of the texts to life.

What the audience say …

… about the Nottingham Chamber Singers (formerly East of England Singers): Wonderful, stunning – a real triumph of a programme! I was moved to tears at times by the exquisite sounds.

The sound of the choir was so beautiful, as was the orchestra, and the soloists were so good. I was so moved by the whole performance. Thank you.

… about the Nottingham Festival Chorus: We had a wonderful time. There was such a variety of music and all of it at such a very high standard. Many thanks to everyone involved with all the planning & rehearsing. The hard work was much appreciated and the result fantastic.
