"Hey Chris! I just want to take the time to thank you from the bottom of my heart! As a composer, It's the best feeling in the world to actually get a chance to hear your work skillfully performed! The kids did an AMAZING job! You must be very proud of them! They play with passion and excitement, and their intonation is EXCELLENT! They are so lucky to have a teacher like you! Again, I thank you, and I look forward to further collaborations in the future! Keep Up The Excellent Work!"

"Sherry, Thanks for inviting me to the concert.... they were outstanding! I had my mom with me and having grown up going to the Atlanta Symphony with her, am pleased to report that she thoroughly enjoyed the music and was incredibly impressed by the talent level by an orchestra filled with high school musicians. Let me know when we are on deck for the next round of fiddles."
