Herts & Soul Community Choir - Testimonials

What Choral Experts, the Press, Charity Partners and our Audience say about us...


Thank you again for inviting me to conduct a choral workshop with you and your choir… Not only did they sing beautifully, but they were a joy to rehearse and perform with.  Bob Chilcott, one of the world's premier composers and choral conductors in Britain today.


I wish you all the very best with your latest concert. It is great to see a choir such as Herts and Soul sitting at the heart of its community and supporting it so positively through the power of singing.  Gareth Malone OBE, Britain’s favourite Choir Master


Herts and Soul’s performance was confident, well-paced and passionate with an infectious energy and sense of enjoyment…a big choir with a very big heart. Lovely all round!  Judging panel, UK Choir Festival


Herts and Soul’s Christmas concert was a most admired and popular event. It was wonderful to see the choir perform. Our heartfelt thanks go out to you and everyone for supporting this event. Christmas can often be one of the hardest times of the year for the families we support. Everybody got into the festive spirit at the concert while fundraising for a fantastic cause, meaning our Family Support Workers can help those families have the best Christmas possible.  Emma Haines, Rainbow Trust’s Director of Marketing and Fundraising


You, the choir and your sizzling band never fail to pull out all the stops. It was so wonderful to be part of such a joyful evening of entertainment. The money raised will cover the cost of 6 home visits by one of the Hospice’s Clinical Nurse Specialists, and is invaluable in helping us to continue to provide home care to local people facing a life-limiting diagnosis.  Renee Friend, Chairman of the Isabel Hospice Fundraising Support Group


THANK YOU! We were delighted to receive your donation of £1250 raised at your ‘Herts and Soul Sing the 60s and 70s’ concert. What an amazing contribution. On behalf of all the people assisted, we would like to say a big and heartfelt thank you. What inspirational leadership, what a choir and what a sound!  Essex and Herts Air Ambulance


Everyone certainly got into the Groove for Grove Cottage with the Herts and Soul community choir on Sunday. The weather was great, the venue fantastic and the choir and the audience were amazing. It was a brilliant day, enjoyed by everyone and the money raised will make a real difference to local people with learning disabilities. A true example of real community support and involvement. Thank you.  Natalie Trapmore, Fundraising Officer, Mencap Grove Cottage


It is good to see how much the Soulsters enjoy what they are doing.  It is abundantly evident from the smiles on every one of their faces.  The choir provides an emotional link between individuals that transcends language, an intimacy that makes them want to smile and really enjoy each other's company.  They clearly have a ridiculously good time and it's infectious.  That number of people can make a big noise that washes over you like Mediterranean waves, leaving you feeling great.  Chas Gill, Bishop's Stortford Independent

Our Audience and Singers say...


Thanks again for our lovely choir and its brilliant community.


Oh what a night! Loved every minute of the concert too, as did my family.


Oh my word Susie, Peter and Chris – your Soulsters need to tour the country to bring your energy and joy to the masses.


You sounded so professional and looked like 'a great big happy family'. Your obvious enjoyment was infectious.


I want another dose of Herts and Soul right now!


It certainly was a wonderful night & the first time that some of my family had been able to see us....they thought we were amazing! They loved every minute!
