    The B Sharp concert at Lyme Regis Marine Theatre was incredible on Sun 7th Dec.I really enjoyed the previous concert,and was very surprised at the standard of singing from the solos and also collectively as the schools performed.The most beautiful singing,and music. My son Samuel sang also sang a solo & I was so amazed to hear such angelic tones from my own son. I was incredibly proud, but totally wowed by the whole standard of the show. Just brilliant.Truly amazing to be able to experience the bsharp experience.Fantastic to see all of those young school children of all ages enjoying the experience too.Thankyou to BSHARP

    Last night’s performance of music and songs inspired by Beer Quarry Caves was fantastic. The music was innovative, uplifting and entertaining – and performed with such obvious enthusiasm. It’s inspiring to see children engaged with music in this way and the work they’ve written and composed is really remarkable. My own daughter has loved working with B Sharp and her singing and general confidence have improved notably.
    We’re very fortunate to have B Sharp providing this kind of outreach work to rural schools, where the children can work and perform with first class musicians under the inspirational music leader ship of John Miles. Thank you to everyone involved.
