I want to tell you again how much I enjoyed your performance. Top rate! Your quartet took me
by the shoulders and shook me fully awake. I was moved to tears by the musicality, the precision, the humor and the humanity of your
program. I learned more from you guys than any of the classes that we took that week.

rare experiences, as an audience member, that you never forget. It was totally unexpected and therefore even more thrilling - Professional
