"The morning you spent with us flew by - many of the children talked about it for days - it has certainly enthused more of them to take up an instrument."
"Thank you very much for the delightful concert given by your orchestra to the school today. The quality of the playing and the evident enjoyment of the participating musicians made the experience one of great pleasure for the children. For so many of them this was the first time they had heard 'live' orchestral music."
"Last night it was impossible not to hang on every note in the performance (Mozart's Cassation K.99) that opened another evening with the New Mozart Orchestra under Clive Fairbairn; surely Mozart himself would never have expected such studied playing in a boyhood suite of cameo pieces."
"Thank you so much for a marvellous evening - wonderful music, and a great feat of organisation. We all enjoyed it enormously. Congratulations to you and everyone who helped to make it such a memorable occasion."
