Paul, Rosemary, Izzy and Dom, Gloucester
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon. You have really opened our eyes to the potential of great music making. Tim's enthusiasm was infectious and the gentle encouragement of the professionals was much appreciated. We now feel personal friends of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

What a thoroughly good morning we had in Newport Centre with the orchestra.I have to say, it was one of the most well thought out and organised music events of this sort that I have ever attended. It was evident how much preparation and work was put in to make this event such a successful and enriching experience. I played `cello and had the opportunity to share a desk with two of the orchestra`s cellists who were so encouraging and friendly.Tim Steiner was amazing and the compser of the musical arragement we had did a marvellous job to include so many instruments.Thank you.

Grant & Paula Hereford
Many thanks to the BBC. A wonderful event and tremendous fun. What an experience!

Gary and Denise, Newport
Thanks for a brilliant morning at the Newport session. What a fantastic experience. BBC NOW very friendly and extremely helpful. Thanks to Bill Graham White for the bass tuition. Great to be playing with a full orchestra - if only for a little while. What a fantastic sound. It spurred Denise on to buy a much better saxophone. We both had a great day. Well done the Beeb !!!

Chloe Smith, Bristol
I thoroughly enjoyed the "play it again" session at Newport. It was interesting learning about the different percussion instruments as some of them I had never heard of! It was really good being able to take part in the orchestra at the end and it's only then do you realise how hard the timings are for everything! Overall I had a good time!

Mary, Bristol
Thanks for an absolutely brilliant morning. It was great! The experience of being able to participate in the orchestra with the choir was quite amazing. It was just what I needed - an oasis in the desert! Everything was so well planned and carried out. Thanks again and I wish you well in all the future events.

Peter and Margaret, Devizes
A huge 'thank-you' for a fantastic morning at Newport. It is quite beyond me to describe the amazing experience, especially when I tell you that I couldn't produce any kind of sound from my instrument when I walked has given me the courage to set about playing seriously. It was a truly life-changing day.

Ed, Newport
Thanks for a great event!
