    I’m always glad to be a part of these recitals and see students of all ages get up in front of an audience. They are often nervous, yet face it with courage. Very nice musical selections; good diversity. Congrats to EVERYONE for their part in making this a fun and enjoyable concert!

    As usual what a beautiful concert. It’s always so refreshing to be a part of this and away from the outside world for a couple of hours. So enjoyable! Keep them coming.
    We love these concerts!
