Reviews!

"Congratulations on a wonderful concert! 

Well polished, delightful, sound, thoughtful arrangements and well conceived solos all
complemented by the the beautifully blended vocals. Even better, the real strength of your compositions are your lyrics; I really enjoyed being transported into the stories you told- like a magic carpet ride. The metaphors were subtle yet powerful, too.

The singles you chose of other composers showed your influences yet you remained true in form, style and substance to your own creations. You both have a musical intelligence that rings through--for sure: your ability to remember lyrics while balancing precision, 
intonation and expression still blows me away." 

John Hudson, music educator
