"Thank you so much on behalf of the committee and members of the society for Maskarade's wonderful concert. Everyone including guests expressed great delight for such a varied and exciting programme - the jazz especially popular - and for the excellence of your performance with such a wide variety of instruments. We would love you to return in the future."
"Another wonderful concert from Maskarade - the society feels very fortunate that you keep returning to give us exciting, innovative and varied music of such high quality and your rapport with the audience is great. You are one of the most accessible groups to book and I hope to be in touch with you again for the 09/10 season."
As recital artists Maskarade have performed for festivals and music societies throughout the UK, and in addition to appearances at the International Convention Centre, the National Portrait Gallery (as guest artists for an invited audience in honour of Sir Simon Rattle) and many National Trust venues, they have toured Mallorca. Both individually and collectively they have broadcast on Classic FM, BBC Radio 2 (Young Musician of the Year - winning performance) and BBC Radio 3.
