I made a donation and was absolutely astonished when I got a personal, handwritten note from a board member AND a personal phone call. Wow, this is what organizations are supposed to do but no one ever seems to. I have been really impressed by the quality of the concerts, and how enjoyable they make the whole experience. I think this is a top-notch organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wonderful music.
