The Haydn-Fest was a really lovely evening all round!  There were lots of compliments from all quarters, so thank you to the orchestra, choir and, of course, our conductor, for a great performance in such a short time.

And we extend special thanks to our soloists:

Helen Miles (Soprano)
Jennifer Westwood (Mezzo-soprano)
Andrew Burden (Tenor)
Gerard Delrez (Bass)

for their support and participation, which added so much to the enjoyment of all.
