"Counterpoint with Anne Tupling, and other members of Sounds Interesting have played for us at the Gateway in Shrewsbury on many occasions, with a range of music as varied as our audience, and always to the highest professional standard. They have helped us maintain an exciting concert programme over many years, and always attract good audiences."
