    This is what the Wiltshire Music Centre is all about! Absolutely wonderful evening of music-making by scores of talented, enthusiastic and totally committed young players. It was uplifting, inspiring and emotionally charged. And what a memory for the young players of SuperStrings, to be performing a world premiere of such an enjoyable work by Jeff Moore. This was the Wiltshire Music Centre at its absolute best.

    (for the Friday performance) What a truly great evening! The talent and enthusiasm of the orchestra, conductor, violin soloist and Superstrings electrified the WMC and us (the audience) with a charming introduction by your new CEO. The Jeff Moore world premier was outstanding, we want the CD and it really deserved a standing ovation! We were too meek to lead the way!
