Choir is one of the highlights of the week and Tom is really cool and fun. The concerts mean a lot to me because we sing with a whole orchestra and it sounds amazing! Also I love my family coming to watch me. I feel really proud.

Out There Music is an education as well as a delight, and Tom Jones is a wonderful teacher as well as musical director. It takes tremendous skill to handle such a range of voices and abilities, playing and singing along, and keeping all of them in mind. So when I am not singing myself or listening to others sing, I am marvelling at how he does it. The whole thing is an inspiration – musically, socially and personally.

Thank you so much for another fabulous term. I am so busy with work that it is rare for me to be able to find the time for other things in term time but I haven't missed a single rehearsal or performance since the south Bristol choir started. It's perfect as far as I'm concerned. Tom is a brilliant musician and teacher and incredibly inspiring. And the vibe suits me. Thank you so much for creating the best thing to have happened to Totterdown!

Thank you so much for another great concert at St Georges! It was wonderful to sing there to a packed house and I thought the organisation was faultless.

Dear Tom, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for giving me the opportunity to sing last Sunday. I think it was without doubt one of the highlights of my life - truly uplifting and I know that all my friends who came thought it was wonderful.

Just a note (no pun intended!) to say thank you SO much for having me in the Chamber Choir since the beginning. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot about singing and my voice in the process. Being part of something so wonderful has been a big support and boost to my confidence. The St George’s and especially the St Monica’s concerts were amazing and a real tribute to what we have all achieved with your expert help and enthusiasm. I’ve also made some great friends in the choirs.

Tom, I simply must thank you for the chance of being in last night's concert, which was a huge success. The finale with the lights down was fantastic but the best moment for me was the Elgar. That had a real spine-tingling bit for me when the choir held a long note over several bars about a third of the way through, plus, of course, the ending. I would love to be part of that again! Thanks to you for creating such an event, to Holly and to everyone who worked so hard to organise it and I hope you raised lots of money for Changing Tunes.

I would like to pass on my immense gratitude for enabling Siena to perform in such a magnificent St George’s concert. It was truly spectacular and had me in tears and not just in Siena’s solo! Her confidence has grown beyond my wildest dreams and it is mostly due to her singing and the many opportunities made available through the Children’s Choir. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This was my first OTM Bristol concert, having only joined in September and I was not disappointed at all! It was so much fun and amazing how it all came together. My friends in the audience loved it! Well done for arranging such varied pieces and for putting together such a great show – the confetti and glow sticks were certainly a lovely touch. One of the people I brought along now wants glow sticks at his wedding!

It has been such fun preparing the music for St George’s and the programme was a wonderful mix. Combining good music with fun visuals was a brilliant idea and appreciated by the audience. ‘Pompeii’ was a great hit with my guests!

Tom, I really enjoyed singing our three pieces and although at first it felt like diving into deep water without a lifebelt, it felt so exciting and was worth all the hard work! Thank you for getting us there and believing we could do it.

I just want to say well done and thank you on what my family and I thought was a most enjoyable concert. My kid’s favourite piece was ‘Singing in the Rain’!

It was super playing at St George’s, especially the Nimrod and I am very glad Tom was able to turn around and see the glow sticks; the audience had a great sense of rhythm!

My husband and son were at the St George’s concert last night and thoroughly enjoyed it, but in particular they said the Requiem was spine-tingling!
