An amazing event!
Unfortunately, we won't be able to attend the next concert as we have a commitment that evening, but wanted to let you know how moved we were by last night's concert. The cantors were amazing, Noreen, Chris, the orchestra (especially the violin section!) and choir were magnificent. Judah's remarks, poem were touching and eloquent. A fitting tribute to Danny's memory. Please extend a hearty yasher koach to all involved.
Last night I had a row of 4 others with me. Everyone enjoyed it immensely. Many thanks for a marvelous program.
Magda - You fulfilled every anticipation we had for an evening that would be uplifting and entertaining as well. Your jazz set was perfect: great selections, exciting renditions both vocal and on your trumpet (a surprise to many), outstanding ensemble work with Chris Hardin and the ensemble. And Koheleth – Ami Aloni would have been pleased. You brought to the piece just the right flavor and you really understood what it was saying.
Marcus - The two Hebrew melodies by Ravel and “Simple Song” from Bernstein’s Mass were a perfect way to start the program. And Koheleth – You brought just the right character to the role and mastered a very challenging tenor part. You conveyed what it was saying to the audience with a sense of dignity and engagement.
I think the best evidence of how successful the evening was is that nobody wanted to leave!
Last night was a wonderful experience! Thank you!
Dear Choir - What can I say - you were superb - I loved looking up and actually seeing your smiling faces look back at me!- what a treat...Every entrance and cut off was spot on!
Congratulations! It was a very moving and emotional night, and the audience could feel it as well...And what a great post concert reception - thanks so much for your contributions!
And thank you to Dick and the Jewish Music Commission for sponsoring this memorable performance.
