Dear Sue and John

Huge thanks for another very special Happiness Half Hour. Amazing interview with Dame Vera Lynne and John’s medal story was very poignant and a great credit to you both.
Your story of one of the oldest audience members Sue was an inspiration to us all.
Congratulations on all the Happiness Half Hours. I am enjoying being able to play them over and over!!! Good luck and very best wishes.

~ Dorothy - 2020

Dear Sue, John & the Gang,

What a way to finish my Anzac Day!

I have just watched your Anzac Special and I have to send this note of appreciation for a wonderful presentation.

The programme brought back memories for me as I certainly know all of the songs, which, during the war were great morale boosters.

Your Happiness Half Hours are excellent, much appreciated and seem to get better and better!

My day started before 6.00am when I stood outside to join in the remembrance and now has finished in the best possible way.

My sincere thanks to all involved.

~ Barry - 2020

Thank you for yet another lovely concert. These concerts are a ray of sunshine in these days of lock downs and it is so nice to feel we are getting to know you on a more personal basis. Love the music, the photographs and love the humour!!

Look forward to seeing you back on stage in Tauranga as soon as circumstances permit. It's a nice feeling to know I belong to the Operatunity family.

Love and best wishes to all.

~ Malcolm, Tauranga - 2020

FANTASTIC show in Whangarei yesterday and congratulations to Sue for her award. I took my sister to a show when she was visiting from Vancouver and she was amazed at the talent and costumes and wished they had something similar in Canada.

She is always keen to hear of my travels with the Operatunity family.

Thank you, Sue and John you bring so much joy.

~ Lynn, Whangarei -100 Glorious Years of Song 2020

We have just attended the Glenn Miller concert in Christchurch. What a wonderful time we had. With the beautiful costume changes by the girls and the music that took us back in time another enjoyable morning. Thank you very much you are all real troupers to keep us entertained after a rather tough night getting to Christchurch.

~ Margaret Smart’s Group, Christchurch - 2020

Hurrah! Hurrah! What a bottler of a show. We laughed, we cheered, we were treated to a delightful
time of music and fun. What a wonderful proms at Mosgiel today. Particularly, the rendition of
O Holy Night which was powerful, poignant and so special to me as was The Holy City – I sat, closed
my eyes and listened to these two beautiful songs performed so wonderfully.

Neat to have a special English guest on stage in all her finery at one stage.

Hope all at Operatunity have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

Look forward to 2020 concerts.

~ Bon, Mosgiel/Dunedin – 2020

Dear John and Sue,

We would like to thank you so much for the wonderful concert that we attended in Rotorua. It was just fantastic as they get better all the time. We are so happy that we are apart of the Operatunity family. Your concerts are a special treat for us as they lift our hearts and send us home with a smile and still singing. You are all so good and will never be forgotten. What a wonderful way to start the year. We love you all. We love you all. We wish you all a very happy New Year.

~ John and Khristine, Rotorua 2020

Hello to The Three Tenors, performers and behind the scenes staff

My husband and I attended your show at the Warkworth Town Hall last Thursday 24 June. This is a message to let you know that we enjoyed the show enormously but that is not all! We were so well and kindly looked after by your staff. We found that a space had been reserved for my husband in his wheelchair which enabled him to have a great view of the stage. Everything was taken care of which helped me enjoy the day also.

Because my Husband’s taxi van had arrived, we had to make a quick exit but before leaving we were asked the type of sandwich we would like. In amongst the rush for the door two super sandwiches were put in our hand and two biscuits as well! It all happened like magic!

We are booked in for the next show and looking forward to going already. It is a highlight of our lives because my husband, Bill Browne has to live permanently at Warkworth Hospital so attending your shows brightens up his life, hugely.

Thank you very much for coming to Warkworth and giving us the opportunity to experience top quality entertainment.

Kind regards

~ Bill and Noeline - 2021

We have just arrived home from the Hamilton concert, what a brilliant show. The three boys were amazing, I don’t think you could better their performance anywhere, and I’m sure they don’t need go to a gym to keep fit. The band also did the concert proud and Grant on the piano was amazing.
We look forward to the Christmas concert.

Thank you again for a wonderful concert

~ Myrie and John - 2021

Hi All, especially Sue and John,

We were among the lucky ones who got to see The Crooners concert last week.
We usually leave the concerts saying “That was the best yet!”.....This one truly was!!
It was fabulous......and so many laughs.

We are sad that many people won’t get to see it, we still all need a ‘lift’ in our lives.
Perhaps a reprise sometime.

Many thanks to all the Operatunity team, you’re all fabulous.
All the very best

~ Pauline and Trevor - 2021

I do not know how to say thank you. It is simply not sufficient for all you give me. So, I sit here wondering, how you will ever know what you have done, not just for me, but for all those thousands who are lucky enough to have found you.

~ Julie, Rondo Member

My husband and I have attended your concerts for some time. Unfortunately, he passed away with lung cancer. Only 11 days prior to this and after his last radiotherapy session he attended your concert. I have a lasting vision of him standing and giving you performances a standing ovation with a huge smile on his face despite his weakened condition. This was probably the last time I saw him enjoying himself. He died 11 days later. Thanks for the memory.

~ Marie

Dear All,
How could I ever thank you enough for the wonderful Happiness Half Hours that you are sending us? If the whole country isn’t listening to these shows they should be. There is absolutely no better way of feeling uplifted and happy than spending half an hour watching and listening to you all. Thank you, Sue, for arranging these programmes and sharing them with us and thank you to all the rest of you amazing performers for sharing your talents with us. If we can’t watch you in person this is absolutely the very next best thing. Now to sign off and spend the rest of my day singing “We’ll Meet Again”.

~ Collen, Hastings Happiness Half Hour

Well done, another amazing contribution from the most caring people of Operatunity. There are not many businesses who would spread so much love and care to the more mature in our country, in such a professional way, as you all do.
Your shows have got better and better as each year goes by. You bring on new, young talent & give them opportunity to progress in their careers.
We feel we know you all personally, just like a family. You make us laugh; you make us cry.
Many thanks & keep up the good work. Also take care of yourselves & your families at this time.

~ Janet, Orewa - Happiness Half Hour

To Operatunity,
You guys and girls are the bee's knees. Now I'm craving Operatunity concerts like I'm craving for fish and chips because I can't have either!!! Huge thanks to Karl's mum for her video and the giggle wobbles were fun. We had to hold our water while jigging along with our favourite fiddler.
There will be special gifts from the lock down and your gift to us is top of that list!!

~ Cindy - Happiness Half Hour

Dear John and Sue,

~ Kristine & John, Rotorua

Heartiest congratulations Susan to you and all your cast. How uplifting and inspiring from everybody! It is so lovely to see so many people enjoying your performances. What joy you brought to the audience as you normally do. I introduced a friend to your concert today and he loved it too. I spent perhaps the 1st 20 to 30 mins wiping away tears of joy and they were never far away after that. The concert was fabulous and brought back so many lovely memories of wonderful music. Bless you all Sue and please convey my heartfelt appreciation to everyone. It was magical and fabulous.

~ John, Te Atatu - 2021

I attended your last concert at Southwards and want to say thank you Operatunity for all your wonderful music and entertainment. You mentioned in your opening that we could laugh or cry and to enjoy the programme, you were right on, I did enjoy, laughed heaps, and struggled to hold back tears while singing "Till We Meet Again", it meant so much to me. Your pianist, voices and acting are all very clever and funny, I like the way you all work as a team from deck to stage to serving us lunch to selling CD's/DVDs on the way out, all well done and great to see. Continue making music for all of us music lovers. I laughed and sang all the way back to Island Bay
