Last night we went, with friends, to see The New Budapest Cafe Orchestra in Leintwardine. It was the most exciting, inspiring and uplifting evening. The orchestra were absolutely wonderful, and we all felt privileged to watch and be so close to such amazing musicians. The whole event was a delight and everybody in the audience were stamping and shouting for more. Thank you Arts Alive for bringing such class entertainment to our area. More of them please, we would certainly love to see that orchestra again.
I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba in Clun a couple of nights ago and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. Voices quite unlike the European, and powerful so that just 2 or 3 voices filled the large church. Not understanding the words, we were just listening to the musicality of the voices, sometimes harmonious sometimes rasping. The programme became increasingly emotional towards the end. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.
