Incredible venue constructed of old pianos in an inventive and intimate amphitheatre design so the audience sees the performance in the round and also feels very much part of the show. The musicians obviously love what they’re doing and are excellent musicians. (Have to single out the bassist as superb - also has great taste, as he plays a Beatles bass!) All the original pieces were interesting and exciting. When the Sink trio joined them, the show went to a higher plane and the song sung by the violinist was stunningly beautiful. Several other orchestra members also sang - one of the woodwind (clarinet?) players sang charismatically in a truly beautiful voice. Wonderful show. So glad we went. Surprised this is the first review, as the audience were extremely enthusiastic throughout the show and went wild at the end. A must see.
