“The show was fantastic. Exposing elementary children to classical music is not easily done. I love the way the program interwove the musical and dramatic portions. As a teacher with strong music and theatre background I can honestly say it was the best program and presentation we could have hoped for.”
– James Clark, Teacher, Merritt, BC
