I wanted to email to say a massive thanks to you and the Choir for singing at my Father’s funeral on Friday. The way the songs were performed was simply stunning. It was everything we envisaged and more, I truly am incredibly grateful.
Having a choir to sing was one of the tops things on my list for the service and you surpassed my expectations. As it’s such an important day for us, I really wanted the hymns to be sung with such passion and for people to enjoy and remember them. I know that succeeded thanks to you. I had so many comments from friends and family about how much you added to the service, and how they thought your voices were beautiful.
And lastly thank you for the amazing performance of Going Home. My Mum chose that song for Dad, and your performance was exquisite. She has mentioned it many times, and I thank you for that memory you’ve given her.
Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the Choir and I’m so sorry I didn’t get to meet you. By the time we had greeted everyone the next service was about to start!
My thanks again and best wishes for the future, Carly x
Steve and I and our guests were absolutely overwhelmed by your performance at our wedding – it was so amazing and perfect and played such a huge part in making our special day so romantic and elegant. In fact your voice was more exceptional and exquisite than I could ever have imagined and I just hope some of our guests captured it on video so we can hear it all again . A big thank you in particular for preparing our special song “The Prayer” and for being a true professional in your detailed preparation beforehand to ensure that our day ran so smoothly. I am sorry I was not able to spend a bit of time with you and to thank you personally on the day only you did a very professional disappearance.
I know that I shall remember your wonderful delivery of all of our songs for always and as soon as I have another joyful occasion I shall be looking for you to be there singing.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Best Wishes, Donna x
PS I notice you have a CD on your website, which I shall purchase but please can you let me know the best way to keep in touch re other CDs you may be making, particularly including my 4 wedding songs, and any public performances / concerts etc.. I so must hear you again !!!
I wanted to thank you and all the lovely singers who helped to make my Mother’s service so special. I can’t thank you enough for organising the group to sing for us – they all had wonderful voices and were so friendly and nice. Thank you too to Nicky who played the oboe so beautifully and made it possible for May to sing her Benedictus. I shall tell everyone how wonderful they all were – thank you!
On behalf of the Zoroastrian Funds of Europe and the Zoroastrian Senior Citizen’s Home Project, I would like to convey my gratitude and thanks for the wonderful and memorable show you put on, last Sunday.
This was indeed a treat for all who attended. The performances were of such high quality that we were all bowled over. Thank you for all your hard work and the passionate performances.
I, too, should like to join Shernaz in sending to you my compliments on behalf of the Zoroastrian Senior Citizens Home Project (ZSCH). Both Sarcoma UK and ZSCH are worthy causes and, therefore, for you to have thought about ZSCH when initially approaching Shernaz was indeed a most laudable gesture on your part. The evening was a thumping success in so far as it provided the audience a most entertaining time. This is thanks to you, in particular, and all your fellow artistes; will you please thank them all on my behalf. Everyone I have spoken to say they were very pleased that they attended the charity show.
We have not yet been able to tie up the account because we are waiting for details of the bar account. Since the bar purchases were on a sale or return basis, and given that all the glasses were hired, the account has taken a wee longer to settle since the final figure has to be worked out by Majestic Wines. I am sure the account will be finalised by next week, whereupon I shall write to you.
Once again, please accept my sincere thanks on behalf of ZSCH for an excellent show.
I didn’t get chance to find you after your performance and my speech on Saturday – sorry. What an amazing performance that was – the whole room loved it and it really was the surprise I was hoping for. Your performance was the extra edge and value I wanted to bring to the event and it certainly did that. I’m so grateful that the weather didn’t affect the event too. I shall never forget Kitty’s face when you came and sang to her and she went all shy! Or the interaction with our friend Steve around the room, that was hilarious. I thought there would be a few chaps who would interact and you hit it perfectly. Many people asked for your details, so I shall pass them on. Thank you again so very much. You made the event extra special. I hope you had a restful Sunday. All the very best, Jodi
Dear Sara, The Ruby Wedding was a spectacular success, thanks to you, Christopher, Clementine and her colleagues. Thank you very much for your help finding such wonderful musicians at short notice; the evening was absolutely made by their fantastic performance! I just really wanted to thank you separately too for getting me out of a hole with only two weeks to go!
Christopher, Thank you very much for your stunning performance at my parents’ Ruby Wedding Anniversary last night. It was even better than I could have hoped for and my parents loved it too! I spent a long time trying to find someone to perform Rachmananov and most professional pianists wouldn’t touch it, with more notice than you. You’ve also got me back into Scott joplin, to which I haven’t listened in years and am very grateful!
Clementine, Thank you very much for your stunning performance at my parents’ Ruby Wedding Anniversary last night. It was even better than I could have hoped for and my parents loved it too! After Christopher’s feature, when you were playing, my father was reluctant to come over for dinner and just wanted to sit and listen to you! Thanks for being so accommodating of all of my requests as well.
Thank you again, you were spectacular and really made the perfect evening for us all. Rachel
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your fantastic renditions of beautiful operatic songs. Your interaction with my guests was great, & I’ve had so many messages complimenting you both, I’d be surprised if you don’t get a few bookings following on from yesterday! Once again, many thanks, David
Again, thank you so much for everything today, from your talent to being utterly great troops. We were up against it today so I really appreciated your enthusiasm. I hope our paths have a chance to cross again and II’ll be sure to send you the video once it’s live. All the best, April
It’s been a good run, the singers have been great, sorry that I haven’t been in touch since, it’s been manically busy! Thank you – all has been good, the client on Thursday was a little difficult in what she wanted, but the singers were very flexible and we managed to keep everyone happy! Have a great Christmas, and see you next year! Ann
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for yesterday. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was the perfect way to kick off our Christmas Party! We have tweeted about it on our Twitter: @WeareRedactive Thanks again and I hope you both have a lovely Christmas! Sophie, Events Assistant
I just wanted to say I loved loved LOVED the carol singers! They were absolutely amazing, they sounded great and looked fantastic! I think the majority of the shops got to see/hear them too, and they added a special touch to the evening.
I can’t recommend them enough, and I will most definitely be using them again.
It was a pleasure dealing with you too; there’s always a worry when dealing with someone new for the first time, but I felt reassured from start to finish so thank you!
I am sorry you and I did not have the opportunity to meet last Friday although I did manage to thank the quartet in the reception room. Everyone was most impressed by your dazzling performance and the guest interaction – it was tight but we just finished before 9.30pm – people do talk rather than eat!! Obviously, you did not stay around for the speeches but had you done so you would have heard me saying that one of our acting guests is a good friend of Aled Jones. She sent him a video of your WITA performance and he replied back that he enjoyed it and wished everyone well. I hope all was good for you guys and Skinners’ Hall looked after you well. Thank you again, Andrew … Sharing the Best Ltd
I simply wanted to thank you for a truly outstanding performance at our birthday celebrations yesterday afternoon. You and Russell were incredible. Breathtaking voices, wonderful acting skills and lovely personalities to go with it. You royally entertained our small family gathering consisting of those aged from 6 to 88 – and how you managed to transform our living room into a private show that would not have been out of place at the Royal Opera House or in London’s West End was a truly remarkable feat! You left us all with an incredibly warm glow and made for a hugely memorable occasion. We shall also be personally recommending you to our friends and contacts in London – you deserve all the success that you rightly achieve! In any case, I wish you every continued success – and I so hope that we get to see each other again. Your voice is simply stunning and it was also truly wonderful to meet you. I am so pleased that our original duet let us down!!! I simply cannot thank you enough – also for your very helpful and efficient preparation for the event at very short notice. With all good wishes and many thanks again, Anthony
I just wanted to say a huge thank you from the McIntyre Big Show Team for being part of the bonkers Midnight Gameshow! My producer has told me how fantastic you all were, and apologies for the torrential rain, I hope your costumes are okay. Great to work with you, and hope to again in the future.
I don’t really know where to start – your quartet was absolutely fabulous and really made the day – the normal comment was “best do I’ve ever been to”. As you know, I was unsure about a 2nd 20 minutes, but in hindsight, if it had been possible, we’d have had more. It put everyone on a high and after speeches, different ones were standing up and telling stories. We hope you enjoyed your trip to Royal Lytham and that you all got back safely. Can’t wait until our 75th so that we can ask you back. Never really got the chance to speak to you, but did enjoy the dance. Best wishes, David
Just a short note to say how nice it was to meet you on Saturday at the Zoroastrian Centre and how much we enjoyed listening to you as well as the fun and super environment you created. It was a great evening and it turned from becoming just another fund raising evening to one of joy and happiness, with peoples moods elevated by your singing.Hope you had a safe journey home and we look forward to meeting you sometime in the not to distant future. With very best wishes and warm regards from us all on Table one. Good luck and all the very best, Pervin and Cyrus
Just to say a big thank you for gracing our fund-rising dinner. Your beautiful singing uplifted everyone and made them give more than they would have normally. Our Chair of the Zoroastrian Senior Citizen’s Home Committee has asked me to thank you as well. Some of the people present, have asked me whether they could go to hear you at a concert. If you are doing anything where the public are allowed to buy tickets, do let me know and I shall inform them. Many thanks and see you soon, Shernaz
Can’t thank you enough for yesterday, what a performance it was brilliant everybody loved it, lots of people asking about you, including management at the golf club, will give them your details if that’s ok with you. Thanks again! Kind regards, Sharon
Thank you so much for organising such a superb ensemble for our Musicals evening. They were all absolutely wonderful and Stephen was a delight to work with. We had 110 people there and everyone enjoyed the evening. They were blown away by the amazing voices! I would be very pleased if you could pass on my gratitude and congratulations to the whole team. Thank you again, Melissa
Wow! Just wanted to let you know the party was a great success……and Russell & Louisa were absolutely brilliant…….lovely people and wonderful voices…..they really were the icing on the cake. I can’t thank them enough. Best wishes Mark
You were truly wonderful on Saturday evening! Everyone agreed it was a real treat to experience your performance. I will happily write a glowing review for you and will, of course, pass on your details to any of Saturday’s guests. I captured some fun video and photos on my iPhone and will edit them over the next couple of days and share them with you. Likewise, I’m so pleased I found you – you are a real gem! Love Lesley x
Thank you again for making our evening amazing, you where just amazing in every way!!! and would love to see you perform again, we just love your voice and so did everyone else. Thank you once again for a fabulous evening, Linda Xx
Hi Sara, sorry for such a late reply…I can’t thank you and your colleague enough for the spectacular performance at the wedding. You blew everyone away and it really added something to the day!! Bravo! I have spoken to the photographer and she is happy to share the photos with you. She said could you contact her via Facebook if possible please? Her Facebook name is Pixie Abott photography
Thanks again for such a wonderful start to our evening. It really set the tone for the event and Wyn was clearly very moved. I am also very grateful for the effort that you went to in order to insure that the difficult logistics did not get in the way of the evening! BW, Nick
Thank you both from all of us here at Bicester Hotel. The performance was brilliant! I’m currently awaiting for the pictures to be sent from our owner, once I have received this I will forward over a couple of images onto yourself. Kind regards, Charlotte, Wedding & Events Coordinator, Bicester Hotel, Golf & Spa
Alyson and I cannot thank you and your colleagues enough for your excellent and wonderful performance last Saturday for our Golden Wedding event. Other than our 3 children, no one including our grandchildren, had any idea of what had been organised. As a consequence your opening event had great impact of initial horror before breaking into song – I know our grandchildren loved it all! The occasion was a huge success and already from thank yous we have received all comment on the ” wonderfully entertaining opera singers”! So thank you so much for being a major contributor to our day. You never know there may be other occasions we may meet! Many thanks again to you all.
Dear Tom, Could you please extend my appreciation and thanks to Rebecca and Stephen for the memorable performances from you all on Friday at my President’s Evening, Bisham? It is an understatement that your singing was superb and it was appreciated that you were mixed with the guests. I have had tremendous feedback, including people being moved to tears and some men who ‘didn’t like opera’ being totally won over and excited by it. I look forward to looking out for your names in concert programmes in the future. Warm regards, Louise
Good Afternoon Sara, Just a quick note to let you know what a wonderful service you provided yesterday, I have spoken with Mrs Neves today and she was absolutely over the moon with everything, she also told me that everybody she she has spoken to also commented on what a lovely service it was and a massive part of that is down to your professionalism, so we would also like to offer our thanks to you. Kind Regards, Peter
Hi Sara, Thank you again for this morning – the feedback has been fantastic, and we all loved listening to your beautiful voice! Everyone commented too, on how lively and engaging Scilla and you are, and how well that caught and kept the children’s attention. We loved the choice of songs too. It was fantastic! With kindest regards, Liz
Hello Sara, All the guests at the party after Irene’s funeral said what a beautiful voice you have and how wonderfully you sang O Mio Babbino Caro. The whole funeral service went fabulously well and you and your choir, led by James the choirmaster, had a huge role to play in its success. It was an absolute delight to work with you. Thank you for your professionalism – you and Hartley Voices certainly delivered the high quality of musicianship that Irene would have loved. I wish you every success in the future. Many, many thanks. All best wishes, Lesley
Hi Sara, Just a note to express my deep thanks to you and your colleagues for joining us at Irene’s funeral yesterday. Your music-making was magnificent and contributed so positively and poignantly to the atmosphere. I have had so much positive feedback about you. Expect more bookings … I’m sorry I was tied up with mourners and unable to say this in person. I hope we get to work together again. Yours, Keith
Dear James and Sara, A huge ‘Thank You’ for coming to sing at Arabella and Ed’s wedding on Saturday. What I heard sounded wonderful and I cannot wait to see the video to hear the rest. There were a lot of complimentary comments on how beautiful the service was. Thank you. Kind regards, Fiona
We want to thank you very much for the wonderful performance that you put on for us yesterday. You both have the most wonderful voices and everyone without exception thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the fact that the all the grandchildren sat quietly and listened and enjoyed is quite an achievement. We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the future. With best wishes, Rosalyn and Harold
Dear Sara, I felt absolutely compelled to write to you to say how thrilled I was with the singing today. You were fantastic. I would have loved to thank you personally but the circumstances prevented me. With best wishes
This is my first day back after an extended Christmas and New Year break so I am very much in catch up mode. The PJH Christmas Party seems a long time ago but my Staff are still talking about it – a great time was had by all. My Staff and guests were absolutely delighted with the surprise appearance of yourself and Russell – a great surprise. The singing was superb with a very moving finale. Well done. I’m sure you’ll have a busy 2017 and I wish you all the best.
…from what I have to say in the 6th Christmas that I been at St Peter’s it was, without a doubt, the most beautiful Carol Service!… The Quartet was absolutely amazing… thank you ‘Festive Carol Singers’… Well, I’d like to say last Sunday’s Nine Lessons and Carols at St. Peter’s ranked right up there among the loveliest I’ve attended in recent years… Thank you so much for such a beautiful evening, time to stand still, listen and reflect, surrounded by beautifully sung Carols… A poignant evening for me as it brought back so many memories from all the carols sung… Such a wonderful Carol Service! My Father in law… was thrilled to listen to the amazing quartet… Thank you all!
Both choirs were absolutely brilliant, so please do thank them for me, the Gospel Choir were so passionate and energised, they were brilliant and gave the boys a run for their money! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and thank you again for your help with choirs over the festive season!
A very quick note to say many thanks for your performance on Friday, it was wonderful and I have received many comments from people saying how much they enjoyed it. On a personal note thank you for singing I Could Have Danced All Night, My Fair Lady is one of my favourite films, I was singing along with you. I will definitely recommend you if I’m ever asked for about a singing waiter act. Have a Happy Christmas and New Year!
Sara, Mark, Just wanted to thank you both for a super surprise on Saturday. You both have incredible voices and we all enjoyed the show immensely. An excellent mix of pop and opera. You have inspired us to see Richard Coxon this Saturday. Thank you once again!
I would like to say that so many of our guests commented on your performance saying how brilliant you all were. Thank you so much, especially working around our busy venue and also the weather was against us bit. Thanks again!
A massive thank you on behalf of the Chamber for a fantastic performance. It was much appreciated and it sounded wonderful. I am sure we will speak again sometime in the future. Until then, wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and new year!
I just wanted to say thank you again for your performances last night at Sky Garden – it was certainly not what I’d expected in terms of space or guest dynamic but you all did an amazing job in a busy crowded environment so thank you very much. Many thanks again and best wishes for a happy Christmas
We are only now home in Scotland and feeling that we are getting back to normal after Fiona and Steve’s fantastic wedding! The contribution of the fabulous singing waiters to the fun and success of the wedding party was immense! Every guest was bedazzled by your performance – each song a thrill and your voices so spectacular. Your interaction was so much fun with all the guests singing and participating! Thank you so much for your excellence in every way! I would not hesitate for a heartbeat to recommend you!
Dear Sara, This is a very big thank you from both Humphrey and myself for making last Saturday a truly memorable occasion, hugely entertaining and very very special. Needless to say everyone has said how amazing you and your fellow singers were and several have asked for your contact details. We hope very much to remain in touch and would like you to entertain us again in the future.
With very best wishes and many thanks!
Sarah & I cannot thank you enough for what you did on Saturday at our wedding. The whole thing from start to finish was seamless, professional and the singing just outstanding. Every single guest has said who wonderful you all where. The signing at the church made the whole thing such a wonderful and happy occasion for everyone. The signing in the marquee just kept that happiness flowing throughout the day. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the future and just wish we could do it all again this Saturday. Thank you so much for everything
Dear Sara, I am really sorry that I didn’t get a chance to thank you in person after you performance on Saturday night. It was a lovely interlude during what was a lovely and memorable evening. Peter REALLY enjoyed the music and was especially please by the inclusion of ‘Deh vieni’ from Figaro as it has a particular significance to him (unknown to me!). The programme was very nicely crafted and balanced. Once again many thanks for adding a surprise to his birthday and one that he will not forget.
