Testimonials

 

My wife, 14 year old son and myself have been fortunate to attend several performances by the Warwickshire Music Hub (formerly the Warwickshire County Music Service) and have always been amazed by the outstanding talent on show. We have seen performances by children of all ages from Key Stage 1 to "A" Level stage. It is hard to believe that all of the performers are still at school. 

The passion and quality shown by the performers and organisers, including tutors, conductors, helpers and comperes, is absolutely fantastic.

We have been entertained by choirs, full orchestras and more contemporary musicians and the quality from all ages is outstanding.

We have recently watched a junior performance of Oliver and all of the performers were absolute stars in their own right. The warm feeling you get when leaving these performances is amazing and we always look forward to the next one.
