Testimonials

Email from Matthew O Hare. Royal Conservatoire of Scotland- 18th November 2014

I wanted to drop you a line to thank you for accommodating me and my guest at your recent performance of The Nutcracker. 

It was a thoroughly enjoyable night and I was extremely impressed with the professionalism, focus and energy from the students. Credit to Julie & Shaun for pulling this so well together, it really was a pleasure to watch. 

The costumes and set really added to the experience, and the duet from Erin & Tim was just stunning to watch. 

Please pass my congratulations to all the students and the team for a wonderful performance, I’ve not stopped speaking this up to my colleagues since! 

Keep up the good work, and again my thanks for looking after us while we visited. 

Do drop me a line if there’s anything I can help you with going ahead. 

Best wishes, 

Matthew.
