‘You managed to present that group of irreligious, uncivilised and unenlightened folk as a coherent, well-disciplined and musical ensemble. What magic!!! Please thank them all for their wonderful contribution to the concert.’ Sue Capper, making light of the informal definition of the word heathens from dictionary.com
'Thank you Deb and all of the Heathens who sang so beautifully last night. So many great comments from all of the audience - you certainly started the BANC AGM with a flourish! Your enthusiasm was more than measurable'. Adrienne
President BANC Committee.
