We recently began soliciting our audiences to leave their written comments during intermission and after our performances. The following is what they shared!
The music is awesome!
I have to admit I like the old standard classical guitar best, but Paul, you get sounds and rhythms out of the guitar that I never knew were in there! Debra, what you do on the flute is amazing! And the two of you together!!!"
I am so glad I got to hear the World Premiere of (the alto flute & guitar arrangement) Farlorn Alemen. Loved the alto flute. Great piece and sad story."
Incredible musicianship! Would like to hear a little about you two personally and history of the music"
Loving the concert -- played very well!"
Loved the second (Liebermann's Allegro) and third (Mellits' Fast) along with the last piece in the first set (Schocker's Friendly Ghost, Mostly) Thanks."
Sounds really cool!"
Your playing is so gorgeous. Thank you for helping me transcend to a place of dreams and imagination."

I could picture the ghost dancing around! (Mysterious Barcodes by Gary Schocker) Favorites so far: Elegy for Lefty (Marc Mellits) and Pensieroso (Gary Schocker)"

Fast (by Marc Mellits) made me, and the lady behind me laugh! Loved the 'ghost!' (Mysterious Barcodes) What fun!"
