Fantastic Equinox success!

18th March 2012, by Mark Lawrence

Well done Chris Long and all involved in Equinox and Koinonia.  What a night and what a feeling! Long may our friendships continue. We have had some wonderful audience feedback from Saturday. Here are a few for you:

“Huge congratulations to you and your team for a wonderful event!”

“Still coming down to earth after the buzz of Saturday, the finale piece still ringing in my ears.”

“Really enjoyed Equinox on Sat. Fabulous concert, really blew me away”

“It was a real treat to hear the different groups and to see such a “Birmingham” audience at Symphony Hall!”

“The concert was amazing, I felt as excited as if I had been singing myself.”

“I wished I could hear it again – there – live – in that situation.”
