Thank you very much for coming to Southern California. This was a real treat. - Phil.D. (an audience member in Fullerton CA, July 2006)

Some of the comments were: "the music was astonishing", "words cannot describe the wonderfully musical evening", "it was an event we will never forget", "the evening was so powerful and we were so fortunate to be included".
