Recital Kudos:

 

George Fattman notes, “Today we concluded our April (2019) recital series with an exquisite piano recital by Harriett Miller. I don't know of a recital that I enjoyed more.”

          “People are still talking about the quality of the Vox Nova performance. (It is being compared favorably vs. the IUP Chorale, which sang around the same time at First Presbyterian.) The GJHS Jazz Band and the IUP organists also were excellent.” 

          “The series would not work without lunch. So we greatly appreciate the volunteers who shop for food and prepare and serve lunch, then clean up.”

 

Eric Pfeil, Director of Bands at GJHS writes, “Thank you again for this opportunity to return.  We had a blast.”

 

Nancy Way, Director of Vox Nova writes,

“Thank you again for the gracious invitation and response to our recital. Best of luck with the series.  Always a pleasure to work with you and First Lutheran.”
