Wonderful, wonderful job! Such heartfelt musicianship! Choice of chamber music and solos were perfect. The combination of classical and pop was performed so well and it definitely engaged our senior members. They are asking for us to bring you back again soon! You are all beautiful musicians and it is so awesome of you to promote your obvious passions of music. Thank you so, so much!
Our kids enjoyed your performance very much. Your musicians are very talented and dedicated. It was a pleasure listening to them. I'm sure they have inspired their young audience to find their passion in music and instruments. The kids in attendance were completely captivated and loved the medley as well as the interactive parts of the performance.
