Your voice, your choice

22 June 2017 / News

As we mark our 30th anniversary this year, we thought we’d compile a list of the 30 most popular pieces in our repertoire. We’re keen to know which pieces you’ve most enjoyed hearing us play over the last 30 years and if there’s a reason behind your choice, we’d love to hear that too!

If you’d like your voice to be heard, click on the button below to register up to three of your favourites. We know it’s hard to remember all the pieces we’ve played, so we’ve listed some composers to help jog your memory. Don’t worry if you can’t remember the exact name of the piece – we’ll fill in the gaps!

We may publish some of the quotes on our website and in a special 30th anniversary commemorative publication, but we’ll check with you first before we do.

Voting closes on 30 June.
