“It was an absolute pleasure working with the amazing team at Parbold Douglas Music. Their level of professionalism for the events we took part in was really impressive from an artist’s perspective. Everything was so well organised, which put us at ease straight away, and we were made to feel extremely welcome and appreciated. Their audience is extremely lucky to have such an enthusiastic and committed team in their area, who are obviously passionate about bringing high quality music to Parbold. Long may they continue!”

The Aquarelle Guitar Quartet (Michael Baker, Vasilis Bessas, James Jervis, Rory Russell), September Saturday, Pied Piper Children’s Concerts and Outreach Tour, 2018

“Parbold was absolutely wonderful; truly! I honestly think it was the best small town recital organisation that I have ever experienced: the piano was superb, the hall was attractive and well-lit with good acoustics, it was sold-out with a very attentive audience and the volunteers were amazing…”

Janina Fialkowska, Following her recital at Parbold on 3rd Ocotber, 2015

"Performing for the Douglas Music Society has been a memorable experience for me. I still vividly remember the warm atmosphere of the venue and the audience who showed incredible concentration which always allows the performer to play at his/her best."

Sunwook Kim, Winner of the 2006 Leads International Piano Competition (Sunwook performed at Douglas Music in May 2011 and again in February 2014)

"Playing at the village hall in Parbold is a great experience; it is entirely different to playing in a large concert hall. It is absolutely ideal for chamber music as the audience are really close to the performers and you get the feeling that you are playing in your living room at home. The acoustics are very good and you can make a good sound with every note being heard clearly. The audience are very enthusiastic and friendly and have always made us most welcome."

Nigel Jay, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra

"Douglas Music at Parbold is one of the best organised of all British concert societies and they now have a splendid (relatively) new venue. I played there in March 2009 with Jennifer Pike and we had a capacity audience whose attention and enthusiasm made for a special atmosphere and a memorable evening."

Martin Roscoe, International Concert Pianist

"As a village hall, Parbold is in a class of its own. It's well-maintained and the set up for Douglas Music concerts is always professional. Once the performance starts, you could be anywhere, the atmosphere is so good."

Jude, Ormskirk
