WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID
A selection of audience and press comments:
"A stellar display by the fledgling 60-piece Studio Orchestra under their founder-conductor Jack Campey, some of the most iconic themes in cinema history re-echoed magnificently round the auditorium of Cheltenham Town Hall, totally captivating the capacity audience...For two wonderful hours, I sat mesmerised by a litany of music bristling with Williams’ distinctive hallmarks"
- Gloucestershire Echo
"What an amazing concert!!! Just sheer perfection from start to finish worthy of any concert hall in the world....so honoured and lucky that you chose Cheltenham to make your debut. How on earth that was only your FIRST concert just astounds me."
- Nick Tobias"
"The performances were absolutely on point and worthy of Maestro John Williams himself. Props to lead violinist and soloist Catherine Lawlor, in particular for her moving rendition of the theme from Schindler's List. The concert was well received by an enthusiastic audience, and the demands for an encore were met (not altogether unexpectedly) by a rousing performance of the Imperial March (from The Empire Strikes Back). Bravo! "
- Simon Gomersall
"From the first note I was spellbound and surprisingly emotional all the way through!! The pieces you selected were very recognisable but played to perfection"
- Richard Bulpin
"My 22 year old daughter was trying to old back the tears on some pieces. It was amazing, every one of the musicians were brilliant. The clarity in which they played was perfect you must be so proud."
