Thank you so very much for all of the efforts you put into Thursday's concert While I thoroughly enjoyed your music, The improvisation presentation, and the variety of the drumming experiences, it was only the next day that the whole experience really "came home"!! On the drive into school, I realized that it was in a totally new space ... I have no words but something definitely changed. Thank you!!!
