Ilkley Gazette, 5 June 2014, 05/06/2014

It is ten days since I heard a wonderful performance of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius @leedsphil @the_halle @LFChorus and I am still haunted by it, despite working on & listening to much music since then. A real masterpiece.

Exactly one month until we become the first School orchestra to perform #Mahler Symphony No. 8 @BridgewaterHall - with partners from @StGeorgesSinger @LFChorus @WellsCathSchool @HerefordCS and many more. Join us on 5 July or on @BBCRadio3!

"[Simon] Wright’s skilful layering of textures achieved impeccable balance and illuminated Elgar’s vast musical canvas."

Take a read of this lovely review from Saturday's closing concert of the 2018/19 International Orchestral Season. ✨

On Saturday in Leeds I heard a wonderful performance of his masterpiece, The Dream of Gerontius. Superb playing from @the_halle @leedsphil @LFChorus @SPSLeeds . Captivating from start to finish. https://t.co/saPty9quBf

The closing concert of @LeedsConcerts Orchestral Season on Saturday had it all - an excellent orchestra, top soloists, a renowned conductor, amazing choral singers, the magnificent organ and a full audience. What a way to close the 2018/19 season!
