Comments from 2019's Woodbridge Singing Safari:
"Thanks for all your hard work and patience, it was a wonderful experience last night – think I enjoyed it even more than the previous year. The comments afterwards were all extremely complimentary from those in the audience. A magical evening to be remembered."
"Thank you very much for all the work you did to get us your choir singing in Woodbridge church last night. It was my first experience, not of singing but of going on such a musical Safari. I enjoyed it all so much, it was life enhancing in so many different ways a big thank you again."
"I thought the concert was fabulous. It was actually really nice just to be a member of the audience for once and to hear it from the other side. We rarely get that opportunity when taking part and I'm never quite sure how good we sound to the paying public. I can confirm you all sounded terrific and I thought some of the men's singing in particular was quite beautiful."
