and feedback

Message from Leon:

Please pass on my enormous gratitude and congratulations to everyone who sang yesterday, it was a really fabulous concert full of energy when required AND the laid-back relaxed approach needed for the Tango inspired pieces. You were all BRILLIANT, as this short clip demonstrates…

Have a look - and you can download any that you want to use by clicking (or tapping) on the picture and then tapping on the little downwards pointing arrow at the bottom right of the picture.


You are given a number of options for the size you want to download - the highest quality are the "original size" pictures.

Feedback emailed in from audience members

A truly splendid concert this afternoon. I had never come across a Bandoneon before but know what a fiendish instrument it is to play so very much enjoyed hearing one played.

I loved your concert today, congratulations to everyone involved, fantastic to hear a choir taking risks and bringing this fantastic music to life in Solihull of all places!!
