"I really enjoyed imagining what the music made me think of and feel. Shepherds' Hey was my favourite. It was really fast, all over in 1 minute 45 seconds!"
"I liked the Superman and Angry Bird themes and the smelly pieces of card (scratch and sniff) really helped it come alive in our imaginiation."
"I enjoyed watching how the musicians played and how the conducter led the perfomance."
"I liked the video game themes because I play games all the time."
"My favourite piece of music was the Final Fantasy piece, it was beautiful and made me feel really happy."
"My favourite part of the performance was the Science theme and I really enjoyed the "Ride of the Valkyries" although some people thought it was called "Flight of the Valkyries" by Wagner. It was really intense.
