It was an entertaining and powerful evening. Great artists, pleasant ambience, warm welcome at reception... We were thrilled and can recommend the gala concert - we heard Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

The kennel is very large and spacious. It would be good if there were a signpost or map so that you don't have to search so long for the location of the event!

Very respectful atmosphere, professionalism of the musicians and a very special harmony. I recommend it.
