“The kids were great! I know many of them and it was such fun to see them perform so beautifully. It was my first time seeing your New Voices performance and I think you are all doing a great job with the kids. The show was fun and entertaining and the material was tailored so that each child shone. Well done!”

“Just wanted to reach out and offer my highest praise for this year’s New Voices show. What an amazing group of kids you trained this summer! I was highly impressed and deeply moved...the way you chose the material to spotlight the talent of each kid on that stage, the total commitment and passion that rose from all of them and the phenomenal way you used the stage and all those exceptionally talent kids was really breath-taking! I haven’t enjoyed a showcase so thoroughly in a very long time and was so glad that I had a chance to attend.”
