Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the I Love Paris concert. It was one of the best ever. The beautiful back drop and the equally beautiful songs and music, made it feel as if I was right there in Paris.
~ Kathleen, Nelson
I knew all the words of all the songs - a fabulous program and each performer was perfect in their individual songs and the ensembles were beautiful with great endings! A standing ovation at the end with cheering and clapping was testament to everyone’s enjoyment. It is certainly up there with the best and everyone wore a huge smile as they left! THANK YOU ALL for brightening our lives!!
~ Dot, Hastings
I just wanted to pass on my congratulations on today’s show. I’m so pleased I attended, as was my neighbour, who was entranced. This was everything such occasions should be: heartfelt, poignant, funny, inspiring, uproarious, festive ... immensely satisfying. Please pass on my plaudits to everyone.
~ Lindsay, Kapiti
We’d like to say a very big congratulations for the last Kiwi Show. It was just fantastic, very professional, humorous, and an absolute delight to watch and listen to and be part of the audience. It is obvious at every performance the stars always give of their best and are very passionate about what they do. We always rave about each concert for days afterwards and endeavor to put the word out there.
~ Jill and Kevin, Masterton
We laughed, sang, cried and clapped our hands sore, it truly was that good a performance. Our congratulations and thanks to all who work so hard to bring these concerts together and the performers who give their all to entertain us so well.
~ Judi and Graham
We thoroughly enjoyed the superb concert today in Invercargill. So honest and moving. Very professional. Our first time. We look forward to becoming regulars.
~ Wendy Joy, Invercargill
