“Outstanding. The selections were just right for this age: classical in nature but upbeat to keep their interest. ”
“I learned that you never give up on your hopes and dreams, you just have to keep trying, and music can help.”
“Keep doing this concert year after year, it's an incredible opportunity for young students who may never see/hear a live performance like this again! ”
“The in-school musician was incredible. He was exceptionally engaging with the students; they were drawn in by his energy and comfortable, fun demeanor with them. They got a good sense of the music that they would be hearing in the concert, and they all enjoyed asking him questions and hearing the information that he gave them about the pieces. This was excellent preparation for the concert.”
