This orchestra is wonderful. They performed in Madeira's Parliament building next to the Cathedral. The programme comprises well known classical pieces by Grieg, JS Bach, Strauss jr, Ponchielli and others. The programme is short, 1 hour, and very sweet. Very enjoyable.

We went to the two hour concert at Vidama Resort Hotel one evening whilst on holiday.
The orchestra played ten pieces, were very professional and well worth the visit.
Highly recommended if you get chance to see them.

We had a fine musical experience, with an orchestra playing a very interesting instrument. The orchestra performed very well with a repertoire of light classical music. All in all, a very nice evening.

The professionalism and hours this orchestra spend preparing was so evident last night. You close your eyes and let the music transport you to another place. The different instruments all complement each other bringing a sound that is different to anything I have ever heard before. So glad I decided to go!

Third time in Madeira and second time hearing this amazing group of musicians under their talented your conductor. A fantastic performance tonight by every single member of the orchestra. The range of dynamics and musical effects that the orchestra produce are simply amazing. Very clever arrangements too that highlight every section of the orchestra. Lovely introduction in Portuguese and English from one of the front of house team which felt much more professional than the Northern English ‘comic’ guy that compared last time.

Instrumental elements were generally enjoyable but spoiled occasionally by lack of syncronicity with vocalists.
Male vocalist in particular was terrible, shouting out his rendition of SILENT NIGHT much to my horror.
I would recommend a visit to this orchestra for a routine performance but certainly not for the Christmas special due to the vocal spoilers.

What a fabulous one hour with encore. Started with some strong Madeiran wine and then into the comfy concert hall. Great tunes and such talented young musicians. We were blown away and certainly would recommend.
