“Great, great job last night! I had many comments on your beautiful playing and wonderful choice of repertoire; many were surprised and very pleased to hear not only the classical pieces but some of the show tunes and even some with a Latin feel.  Many expressed to me that they had never dreamed that a string trio could provide so much diversity. Well done!  Your music delighted the ear, touched the heart, and enhanced the evening for everyone.  And as always, the musicianship was superb. Many thanks!”  J.P.
