What they said
This is a selection of the kind comments that Chimes received from audience members over the years.
We so very much enjoyed the proceedings on Friday night - it was wonderful... We are very lucky to have so much talent to entertain us.
Just a note to say how much we enjoyed the concert on Friday. It was a superb evening from the service in the church to the amazing concert.
You must all have worked so hard to put on such a professional performance. Many thanks to all concerned.
Congratulations ... on a wonderful show. I thought it was the best value for money in entertainment I've had for a long time!
I am sure I am joined by all who enjoyed this wonderful evening in expressing our thanks and appreciation for the outstanding performances from [the cast], who all gave so freely of their time and talents... those who heard Selwyn perform as the mightiest magician of the age will, like me, have a little difficulty in adjusting to viewing him again as our Rector!
We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and thank you for putting on such a terrific show... The evening was great fun and a delight.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares... Strangers, angels, or just random residents of the benefice. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
We had a wonderful evening. Thank you so much. I was in church on Sunday morning and so many people came up and said how much they had enjoyed it, how professional it was, and what lovely people you all are!
...we were immediately transported to a magical musical land. The singing was of such a high professional standard that we were speechless with admiration...
...Chimes gave us an evening we shall remember for a very long time... I'm pleased to enclose West Wimbledon Operatic Club's cheque for £300 towards Hearing Dogs for Deaf People's funds...
What a wonderful performance Chimes Musical Theatre put on for the benefit of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People. Douglas, Diana, Beryl & I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and left the show with the wonderful singing still ringing in our ears. Even Pepe [the hearing dog] seemed to settle down and enjoy the singing and realised what the applause was all about! On behalf of HDfDP I would like to thank you and all concerned for the hard work and preparation that went in to producing such a professional and enjoyable programme.
On behalf of everyone in St. Andrew's Church yesterday evening, we would like to say a big thank you to you all for giving us such a memorable time. We have heard nothing but praise during our various activities today... The evening was an outstanding success and enjoyed by all who were fortunate enough to be in the audience. Thank you both and your team for a memorable evening of entertainment.
I must congratulate you on the concert which I so enjoyed last Thursday evening. You were all splendid.
A most entertaining evening... and a lot of work - congratulations.
Last Saturday's concert at the Wisdom of God was an outstanding success and greatly enjoyed by all who attended... we do wish to thank you for an evening of great variety and sparkle...
It was a superb evening and everyone enjoyed it...
We very much enjoyed your varied and interesting concert this afternoon. Well done and thank you.
The reports I am now hearing about your wonderful presentation yesterday should be making your ears burn...
Thank you once again for the concert you performed for us... my Music Speech & Drama Committee in particular admired the individual singing talents of your group. The enjoyment of performance was evident for all to see...
This is to say "thank you" again for the wonderful evening... everyone enjoyed it so much.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the concert (both times)... I've never heard the Beauty Stone music performed so well.
An enormous thank you... for a really super evening... it was obvious that everyone enjoyed your presentation enormously...
Thank you for a wonderful evening yesterday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the sheer professionalism you brought to the evening, as well as the warmth and fun that you all managed to put over to all of us. It was an enchanted evening - a little moment of magic in the middle of our village.
...Thank you very much for... the splendid entertainment you and your young colleagues provided... my only regret was that there were so few of us to enjoy it; but like true professionals you put in the same effort for the "few" as you would have done if the church was full...
To say "Thank you" for such a professional performance last Saturday somehow does not seem enough. Everyone was bowled over by the top quality of the singing and the acting - we have never had such talent...
Just a note to thank you for the splendid Chimes Musical Theatre evening. It was delightful in every way - a huge variety of music most skilfully executed...
