KIND WORDS FROM OUR PATRONS

Suzie Sattell

Truly a powerhouse concert! Gorgeous music performed by brilliant musicians as passionately as I’ve ever heard

—Roger Thomas

Stellar performances by all. A distinct frisson of approval and enjoyment at audience level (at orchestra level as well). Packed house to boot. Bravo to Maestra JoAnn Falletta: Grammy winning, has conducted over 100 orchestras worldwide, Renowned as a “demonstrative, kinetic conductor” (The New York Times). And graceful, endearing. What a Season Opening! I.A.M.R.E.A.D.Y. for the rest of it!
