We were a bit trepidatious about moving the Festival to a virtual setting. But opening weekend came off without a hitch, and we are getting lots of positive feedback about the Nadine Sierra and James Ehnes concerts:
"Talent and power beyond all superlatives!"
"Just have to tell you what a spectacular performance Festival presented last night. Ms. Sierra is superbly talented and chose music that was uplifting, familiar and beautifully melodic. Her voice had a soaring magical quality. What an event. Book her every year!!! Thanks."
"Nadine was magnificent!!! Lovely program! Everything perfect ~"
"FANTASTIC! I don't know if I dare to say this but this is such a silver lining of the pandemic. Because of it, we had this fabulous concert right in our home. It brought tears in my eyes and I do believe this might be the start of a new way of reaching music lovers.
"The Show was amazing! The Sound was amazing! You did a great job against great odds! We are so proud to be part of the festival."
"WOW!!!! [We] were so very impressed with tonight’s program, congratulations on your successes. We were only sorry we couldn’t be there with you, but we are still are afraid to go out among crowds. Congratulations again."
If you missed these concerts, be sure not to let next weekend's performances pass you by! We have a concert Saturday night featuring The Festival All Stars, and the closing concert Sunday night with Nestor Torres.
