  • I absolutely loved the event and the selection of the music, the quartet was great! Overall an awesome experience... more candles would never be too much!
  • The music, musicians, and ambiance were all wonderful!! I especially enjoyed hearing about each piece before it was played! My own suggestion is to check the sound from the back of the venue. I was in the balcony and had a very hard time hearing the first violinist speaking about the pieces.
  • One of the most amazing evenings we have had in a long time. I bought the tickets for my wife 60th and she said that it was the best present I had ever given her. We have seen excellent talented musicians before but this was on a completely different level. It was so moving and so introspective that even the neophyte could tell a difference. Just amazing. Thank you so much. We WILL be back.

  • Words will not suffice for the sublime essence and feeling of this experience. You feel it through every part of your mind, body, and soul. This is how life is meant to be felt. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You were sublime.
  • The event was great! It was very interesting to hear very various pieces of Vivaldi music. Sound could have been better, even in a church: I suggest adding microphones all around.
