"Thanks … for a wonderful evening"
Parkham Parochial Church Council
"In the three decades following its formation the Winkleigh Singers have become well-known throughout North Devon and beyond for high quality performances of classical pieces. The 30th anniversary celebration concert … was a memorable occasion, not only for the standard of their singing but also for the choice of the pieces they performed."
"A truly memorable evening"
" ...a delightful summer concert"
"The Winkleigh Singers, conducted by Roland Smith, created a
mood that was suitably serious, yet full of joy."
"A superb concert!"
"...these amateur singers succeeded in getting over every nuance of the score
and in giving the work a showing of which any professional choir would be proud."
"Bringing together the Winkleigh Singers and Devon Baroque was inspirational...
This fine choir can be seen to enjoy their music making and their rapport
with Devon Baroque was remarkable..."
North Devon Journal, various reviews
"...it was an exceptional pleasure to hear a complete Messiah given by a first rate professional orchestra, a fine team of young soloists and a gifted amateur chamber choir"
Seen and Heard International
"...the resultant performance was the best I've heard in my visiting years which number over 20"
"...a high standard of performance from both choir and soloists"
