Wow! What a beautiful surprise a CD in the mail from you! Thank you so much! I will be putting into my portable CD player just as soon as I send this email.
It was a Glorious Concert!!! Everything about it was elegant & superb. You really know how to put everything together - the music, musicians and that fantastic man, singer, actor, Joseph Wright! I am truly a dedicated fan of you both! Scott Krijnen is the absolute Cello Artist! He plays the cello with such ease and emotion that I felt like I could go up there and do the same. Believe me - I could not! Every concert you put together seems like the best one - and that is so.
Thanks again for the tremendous concert on Saturday night. The orchestra sounds better than ever -- all sections shine. The soloists were outstanding and the choice of music was excellent. I am always amazed at your energy in bringing these concerts to life.
Thanks again for the great pleasure of playing with this orchestra.
I so appreciate the respect, enthusiasm, and joy with which you lead this orchestra. I love the way you include children in the audience and ask them to stand as valued listeners. I feel so grateful to have played all the music you have chosen for us this year, in an orchestra which combines high level playing with an open-hearted, generous attitude toward music and one another.
Irene and I were thrilled to be part of this concert.
I have an audience quote for you about Scott. My friend was sitting next to a woman who remarked after Scott's solo, "Gorgeous and talented!"
I'm so happy Erik contacted me for this gig. When I saw a few people near the front covering their ears during the Ride I knew we were doing our job. Thanks for the heads up on Pictures. I'll have my F tuba chops ready for the Bydlo.
