“This was joyful, intriguing, high quality art that fed my heart and soul. My deep thanks to all of you who had the vision and ability to craft this gift to our community!”

“The LIVE ART experience was the best concert experience I have ever had in my life – bar none.”

“The magic created by seeing children of all abilities perform with the professional artists, and the impact the relationship had on the performances, was infectious. You could FEEL the professionals exerting their energy in support of the students.”

“I brought my Mom to the show. She was visiting from Ohio. She just turned 80 last week and she said it was the best show she has ever seen!”

“My family cannot stop thinking about the show. It was the most special thing that we can remember ever seeing or doing together. It was life-changing.
