This concert was amazing. I like how Paul Maxwell started the concert and I like how the Pizarro Brothers were funny in their music. How do you teach a kid to do that?

OMG! The Pizarro Bros have matured so beautifully! And Michael was GREAT! And little Gene and Kate – such potential. And Paul, so much more poised. I loved “The Flight”. And Claire’s original compositions. Just watching these kids grow from season to season is such a privilege. I loved watching the Ng family!

Loved the Pizarro Brothers – not only great performers, but great entertainers! All the children were wonderful! Love that they play AND compose. The fact that some of them volunteer is very commendable.

[I liked] All of it – the one violin piece was little long and some of the passages were anticlimactic. My favorite pieces were the cello pieces – very touching, evocative, quiet.
