Read some unsolicited comments from our recent performances:

Many thanks to the Solstice Sackbuts for Sunday’s program. There were several evaluations, all excellent, including some complimentary comments—‘Wonderful explanations – very seasonal.’ ‘Enjoyed the music and the history.’

Programs like yours help us fulfill our mission of being a community gathering place for educational and cultural events, and we appreciate your willingness to perform here.”

I really enjoyed your program at the Arlington Robbins Library…I go to a lot of concerts and have wide-ranging musical interests, but…. I was blown away by the range of styles you covered, while still presenting as a flowing and coherent program…. You all really lit up our modest “Community Room” on a cold February Sunday afternoon…. I couldn’t think of a better group to invite (back).”

Thank you to Leslie, Alan and David here at Tower Hill during our Holly Days celebration for a lovely performance. I for one had never heard a trombone trio and was delighted!  What a wonderful addition to our seasonal offerings!”

 “Needless to say, we on the library’s Music Committee greatly enjoyed and appreciated your concert, as did your audience. I found the more “modern” program refreshing, and it was a fine addition to our concert schedule. It made for a very satisfying afternoon.”

Please extend my thanks to the other two musicians for an excellent performance!  The piece from the Japanese composer was beautifully staged and executed, and the audience really enjoyed the concert.”
