Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I’ve only just come back from holiday yesterday. Thank you all very much for performing at Chester Green lunch club on the 11th March. All our members really enjoyed it and were full of compliments after. The mix of beautiful singing and a bit humour was just right and ensured everyone was kept fully entertained. Some of our members have memory problems or various degrees of dementia and it can be difficult for them to interact and participate so it is great to see them tapping their feet along to the singing or just being able to tell that they are listening and feeling the music. Very uplifting for them. The members have also asked if we can arrange for you all to come again so I’ll be in touch and hopefully we can sort out a suitable date. Thank you all again.

Many thanks for a beautiful performance yesterday. I know you wanted a few comments from our group and I have attached our Newsletter in the hope that this will give you what you need. I can only repeat what I wrote, it was the perfect accompaniment to our meal, a delightful blend of harmony and humour, we particularly appreciated the way Chris (I hope I've got the right name) tailored his humour to the particular audience. My favourite was your arrangement of 'Something' with such a sensitive ending to it.

I am glad to hear that you all enjoyed performing at the ball, we enjoyed listening to you!
Derby A Capella are an enthusiastic group of wonderful singers who lit up the room when they started to sing at our charity ball.
They were professional, looked smart and made us all smile and sway when they sang.
I would highly recommend hiring Derby A Cappella for any event, they truly are a wonderful addition to any occasion.
