Standing Ovations!!!


Here is some of the feedback:

“Thanks for the congratulations. I want to thank YOU for doing a spectacular job of conducting. It was such a pleasure to sing for you last night. You drew us out in the best possible way -- by communicating your passion for the music with your whole being. What a privilege to be part of that.

“First and foremost.... Congratulations!! That certainly was a great concert!!! I know that, speaking for myself and several of the other players in the wind section, we're HOOKED and are totally excited about what the future holds for this group. I was proud to have been associated with and contributed to the quality of the performance.

“It was great fun! I’m so glad it went well. you did a marvelous job of conducting. Your energy and dedication are inspiring. Thank You!

“THANK YOU for such a good experience. I loved the Mass in G and the chance to learn it. My friends from San Mateo came (one sang it with Masterworks C) and she was VERY complimentary.”

“Best concert we ever did!!! I would even say, Awesome!!!“

“I really enjoyed singing the Schubert Mass in the concert. It adds a lot to have an orchestra.”

“ I second Libby's enthusiasm for the Schubert Mass. I loved singing it, had a great time performing it, and enjoyed having so many of my family and friends at the performance. They all had only high words of praise -- for the performances, and for your conducting.

Thank you. I am enjoying singing under your direction, Michael.”

“I was impressed at how well you did. I really enjoyed singing along with your church choir. I also loved singing with the orchestra. I also enjoyed listening to the orchestra"s extra pieces. They are wonderful. What a talented group of people!”

“This concert sounds fabulous! I really admire the work that you are doing with the UUCPA choir. I wish I could attend on Saturday, but our family has multiple commitments in the evening. :-(

Good luck with the concert, and keep up the great work!”
