Testimonial from a concert promoter:
"You were superb yesterday afternoon, certainly one of our best concerts of the entire year!  Your musicianship is amazing and inspiring, and we're grateful you share it with us. As was obvious by the sustained applause, you were a big hit with our residents!"

Praise from a school presentation coordinator:
"Joe, I want to thank you and Deborah so much for coming and performing for us.  It was a perfect demonstration for my class.  Very in line with how I teach my appreciation class.  I think for many of the students it may have been the most exposure they ever had to classical music. In person is so much more powerful for them than on the screen."

Letter from a concert collaborator:

Review of Joe's performance with pianist Fred Hersch:


From a concert host:
"This afternoon's concert was terrific! As you could tell, our audience loved you. Your selections were varied and interesting, and your playing was lovely. Please express our appreciation to Sarah as well. You provided us with a truly enjoyable afternoon!"

From a fellow musician:

"Just wanted to thank everyone for the recital last night. With limited rehearsals it can be stressful, and I was so grateful for how you all stepped up, especially pulling together that cool Martinu string trio. It was a nicely balanced program."

From a parent of a student:

"I was amazed at her progress since beginning lessons with you. I'm trying hard to encourage her to stick with it. Again, I was impressed."

From a parent of a student:

"Many, many thanks for working with (my son) this year!  I look forward to another productive year of violin lessons."

From a school administrator, referring to a recent valedictorian:
"I honestly believe that without violin she wouldn't have done so well. You ... contributed a lot to her success."

From a concert contractor:
"You're great to work with and make a big difference."
