Penny Bentley in Columbia Primary School, Bethnal Green, London - mid December, 1997
[Letter included in evaluation report to David Burles from Penny Bentley, head teacher Columbia Primary School, dated 17 December 1997]
I am writing to thank you for the trio performance last week. They were brilliant! We greatly enjoyed the range of instruments, the variety of music, and the audience participation. Our children sang lustily. And the performers’ manner with the children was excellent—they were informal, pleasant and respectful—just right!
Thank you for organising it.
