Grace Notes at St John's Cathedral, 30 December 2015
I really enjoyed it. Amazing how lovely a sound by so few people. Obviously all very talented!
Grace Notes at Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club September 16
I have now seen Grace Notes twice at the club, once in the Chart Room and last Wednesday in the Compass Room. On both occasions I found the evening to be very enjoyable. They are a very talented group of ladies. It would be very nice to see more of their performances at the club in the future.
I very much enjoyed the singing last night and would be more than happy to see it repeated on a regular basis.
I am sure the others on my table enjoyed it too and I have asked them to send their own comments to you.
I was particularly impressed by how few members and guests talked at all during the performance which is rare in my experience for a dinner show of any kind and indicates a high level of appreciation as well as somewhat surprisingly good manners.
Last evening was the first time we heard Grace Notes perform at the Club and my husband Eddie and I are convinced the choir should be given more opportunity to sing to members going forward. Not only were they technically good but their choice of music was just right for the occasion - ie, dinner at Compass.
We believe that Grace Notes will be especially good at enhancing the atmosphere at festive occasions, notably Christmas.

Grace Notes at Choir Aid (at St. John's)

My husband pronounced last night's event as a TRIUMPH! He said everyone enjoyed Margaret, who moved the evening along and made it fun. He liked most of the songs and he noted some
very good singers in Grace Notes, who knew how to create the mood of the songs. Thank you for sharing your talents and efforts. Many thanks, sarah

Thanks for your reply, I’ve check my December & January statements but didn’t see an item showing that the check I sent you in December was cashed.
I enjoyed utterly the concert, the bellringers were wonderful & the singing of both women’s groups was awesome! Love to come again, we know Valerie & Wendy very well in our church, & I’m so happy the proceeds go to the home.

Last night was great, many thanks to you and your ladies, everyone enjoyed your singing. Can you please convey our sincere thanks to all the ladies concerned please?
That was a great performance last night. Many, many thanks for all your work
and patience. The harmonies in 'At Last' came across superbly and 'Bugle Boy'
was a treat. Some people commented that 'At Last' was one of the highlights of
I'm working on a few other ideas. Watch this space ….
Thanks again, it was great fun.
Lovely to see you guys on Saturday.
In case you didn't know, your two songs were fantastic. You were dead-on pitch, perfectly close to the microphones so that could hear each of you. AND the harmonies - and they were really lovely.
Brian joked with me later to say that he was probably in trouble with you guys cos your 2nd song was so fast - but it did sound brilliant!
Well done! See you for China Coast in December - hopefully I can turn the pages (even tho' can't read music, hahaha!) - if you'll have me!
