“It was so good to hear such beautiful music, most of which I’d never heard before. It felt such a privilege to be in everyone’s gardens – it was very generous of you to open your own homes to us for a performance space other than the usual concert hall. I loved the informality of it, like the fact that we were all sitting on a funny mix of chairs, stools and anything else with a flat surface. The chat was nice and relaxed.” – Avant Gardens 2021 audience member
