Chong Lim (Musical Director – Two Strong Hearts Tour with John Farnham & Olivia Newton, Qantas Credit Union Arena and Tempus Two Winery): “I’d like to thank The Metropolitan Orchestra for their wonderful playing on the Two Strong Hearts tour. I had a really great time working with the orchestra and Sarah-Grace was a delight to work with. Olivia and John in particular loved the sound of the orchestra.”
Tiffany Noack (Associate Producer – Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, Qantas Credit Union Arena): “Dear Sarah-Grace, thank you so much for all your fantastic work on the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular. The orchestra sounded amazing! A special thanks to you personally for going the extra mile in regards to the organisation required beforehand. Your generosity of knowledge helped make the process a smooth one and my dealings with TMO an absolute pleasure.”
Scott Bellingham (Event Manager – Kate Ceberano and James Morrison Opera House Gala Concert): “Dear Sarah-Grace, I cannot tell you how fantastic you were with this concert – your support, advice and following up was one million percent the reason why we had a successful concert. The orchestra sounded incredible and the clients had an amazing time and said it was one of those once in a life time memories, so we really “hit a home run” as they say. I really hope I get the opportunity to organise another concert involving an orchestra, because I know who I will be calling!!”
Paul Chesher (Concert Promoter): “Sarah-Grace and her team were a pleasure to work with. They continuously went over and above to contribute to the overall success of the event (Opera in the Vineyards 2013). The Orchestra was fantastic and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our audience.”
David Helfgott (Pianist): “Working with Sarah Grace Williams and The Metropolitan Orchestra was a great joy to me. She is a wonderful conductor and so caring of the soloist you know you are in excellent hands. Her musicality and discipline enables one to give of one’s best and I just loved working with her so much. Our collaboration on the Rachmaninov Third Piano Concerto was so exciting and satisfying, and that is truly a challenging work. I do hope to work with her more in the future.”
Andrew McKinnon (Producer): “David Helfgott loved performing the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 3 with Sarah-Grace Williams and the Metropolitan Orchestra. As producer of the concert, I was struck by the outstanding degree of preparation and musicianship displayed by Sarah-Grace and the orchestra. I shall be delighted to engage them again.”
George Fenton (Composer/Conductor BBC Blue Planet & Planet Earth): “Working with The Metropolitan Orchestra was a great experience, I was proud to work with them. They are talented, generous musicians and a great bunch to be with. They made my music shine!”
Martine Quigley (Events Manager, Cambridge Events): “We are extremely honoured to have worked with The Metropolitan Orchestra. It has been a pleasure liaising with you during the lead up to, the recording and the performance itself. Both Sarah-Grace and the TMO members demonstrated absolute professionalism at all times. Ms Sarah-Grace is not only a brilliant conductor, she is a class act! We are proud to have engaged this association with The Metropolitan Orchestra.”
