“I love this music but didn’t know much of what to expect from a whole concert of it. I was blown away. The whole show was a spectacle that brought new life into all of these songs by a cast of world class singers. Never a single dull moment and we didn’t want it to end. Thanks for elevating our community with your music.”  Clara P. from Nanaimo

“The show was fantastic! If you are seeing it in another city, you are in for a real treat when you see it. The talent is completely fabulous! The whole cast is so talented bringing this music to life."  Anne F from Victoria

“You certainly did take Nanaimo by storm! What a great show and ohhhh your voices - so beautiful! It was a magical afternoon.”  
Rita B. from Nanaimo

"Thank you so much for a very enjoyable afternoon. Although we didn't know all of the music, we knew a whole lot of it. The only complaint I have, is that it ended way to soon. We would have gladly sat for a much longer show given how wonderfully talented everyone was. Amazing job!! Thank you, once again!!"  Ron & Randy Pruden,   from Abbotsford

"I was at the Cultural Centre in Chilliwack last night. I LOVED the show."  Jill Robertson, from Chilliwack

"Saw this concert in Abbotsford on Sunday....it was amazing ! All the artists were so great ..the lighting effects were super and ..of course...the music ! It was well paced and would have loved it to go on for another 2 hours.  As we're older and don't drive into Vancouver any more, it's great to have artists come to us. And didn't realize we had such very talented singers in our area (including the Island)! Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon."  Lee Hopwood from Abbotsford
