"Thank you for the opportunity to take part in this course. I had a fantastic time and will never forget the experience I had. I met some friends for life, and learnt so much musically. I enjoyed my time there and singing in the choir and wouldn't miss the next course for the world."

"Roedd y gyngerdd yn y Fenni yn gofiadwy iawn ac yn uchafbwynt ir cwrs, ond hefyd y ffaith fy mod i wedi gwneud sut gymaint o ffrindiau newydd, ac yn cadw cysylltiad a hwy ar hyn o bryd."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the choir, both throughout the week and especially the concert at the end of the week where the acoustics were amazing. Thank you to you and your team for all your effort to make it a success."

"Baswn yn cymeradwyo y CHCIC i ffrindiau â diddordeb mewn cerddoriaeth. Mae'r wythnos yn wych am addysg allannol a hefyd yn siawns i gymdeithasu a phobl o bob cwr o Gymru sydd yn rhannu'r un diddordeb."

"My daughter had a wonderful time on the course, she thoroughly enjoyed the content and met some lovely people, she said she will definitely audition again next year. Myself and my husband really enjoyed the concert and we also couldn’t believe the standard given that they had only been practising together for a matter of days. This is such a lovely opportunity for like minded young people to get together and perform."

"I would just like to thank you for a great week, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and it was a fantastic opportunity for me to be able to work alongside some very talented people."

"May I first congratulate you on the final concert, it was amazing what you had achieved with the children in the short space of time. My daughter had a fantastic time with the choir and hopes to be able to do it again next year."

"Just a quick note to say thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to be part of one of the best thing I have done in a long time."

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone concerned for the fantastic course my daughter attended last week. She really loved it, both musically and socially. She feels she learned a great deal, and enjoyed every minute. I'd love it if you could pass on our thanks to her singing teacher too - she felt that her lessons made a really big difference to her singing, and she was really inspired by them. I am very grateful to all the people who must have worked very hard to make it all happen. We were very impressed by the concert - an incredible achievement in such a short time. I notice that she has acquired a very large number of new friends on Facebook!"

"We were very impressed with the standard of the choir and found it amazing that you could do so much in such a short time!"

"Congratulations on a fantastic concert last night. You and your team and the choir (!!) have obviously worked incredibly hard over the past 6 days and the choir were a credit to you."

"I will recommend the NYTCW to my friends because it was a great experience and I would like it to be shared with more people."

"I would recommend the course to anyone. The tutors were great and I also gained a lot from the singing lessons. I had the best week and made so many friends all of who I am still in touch with."
