Audience member, Riverside Plays Opera, Durham Brass Festival 2011

We wish to place on record our appreciation of the …evening at Consett on July 11th. We had not been to an opera or brass concert before but we thoroughly enjoyed it…We feel fortunate that we were able to experience this concert so near to home, as anything comparable, we believe  we should have had to travel to London to see. We hope that… there may be more presentations in the future.
