”The ensemble itself is a marvel in itself. A non-auditioned community band simply doesn’t play at the high level of technique, ensemble and musical maturity as Nanset where I come from. There is a consistency of approach and performance that is truly inspirational. Thank you, Mr. Lysebo, for a truly enjoyable and thought provoking afternoon.”

Marc Crompton after Nansets performance at WASBE 2003 in Jönköping
