“It is so good to have a peaceful moment with great talents.”
“I loved all of it, and it was super entertaining to watch
and to hear!” (student)
“I am a Country & Western music fan. But I know what
I enjoy and I enjoyed this. Thank you for warming our hearts
with your talents.” K.B.
“My first time, to my knowledge, I’ve ever heard
chamber music and to my surprise I really enjoyed it. I found
with my eyes either closed or looking above I appreciated the
music more than when I watched the musicians, although watching
you was fun, too.” anon.
“We are so fortunate to have your group in our midst.
Each program kicks it up a notch! Keep up the excellent work.”
