"My Students want me to thank you and the symphony for the tickets that enabled them to attend the concert.  Even the youngest one (third grade) was engaged throughout the whole program.  The commented on the different instruments (I had taken binoculars which got passed around), listened attentively, laughed, and clapped enthusiastically.  Their only disappointment was finding out it was the last concert of the season.

I add my thanks for this program which encourages young students to experience a live orchestra and hear music they would not necessarily go to on their iPods.  

A big thank you to Maestro Pickett for making it so entertaining!"
