What an experience!!!!! The hospitality and friendliness of the staff and boys. The concert was really the climax of our day. You deserve a standing applause. The well auditioned and excellent performance was food for our soul.

Thank you for your positive feedback. We look forward to seeing you again at one of our concerts. Maybe your 6-year old will come and join us in the mountains when he turns 9 :-)

We loved the show. These boys are brilliant at such a young age, bright futures ahead. Apart from just the singing, the theatrics in the show took it to another level. Even my 2 year old kid was loving it.
