“What a bliss it was to hear incredible music, played by incredible musicians and to feel such a special part of the rehearsal. Members of my group were enthralled with the music. They also remarked what a fasciantion it was to see and hear musicians in their work environment and be privy to their comments as they worked out their program. Thank you so much for the opportunity.”
