Client Comment
“Now that all the excitement has died down, we just want to thank you once more for your performance and for making Saturday such a wonderful day for us and our guests. Everyone was truly thrilled and it turned what was always bound to be a happy day into the happiest day of our lives.”

Dear Sara,
On behalf of everyone he re at the Ashmolean, I wanted to write and say thanks you for making the arrangement for Rebecca to perform at the Ashmolean’ event on Fraday 29 Setember 2006. Rebecca was wonderful. Her playing set the tone of the evening perfectly, created a magical atmosphere and contributed to the success of the evening. From the moment our guests walked in the door, the sound of the harp helped to make this a very special occasion.

Not only did Rebecca played brilliantly, she was friendly and cheerful which made her a pleasure to have at the event.

With thanks once again for helping to make this possible.

Your sincerely,
Helen Duncan
