Tremendous performance. Wide variety of instrumental and vocal presentations. Very talented and surprising versatile musicians displaying wide range of historic and classical renditions. Not just a night of Sousa march music. A performance matching the venue in which they played.

Wonderful concert! Having these events live-streamed is great for those families who live 4+ hours away! It also allows grandparents who couldn't make the trip to be part of their student's college experience!

It was wonderful to enjoy this concert from the comfort of my home. The All College Band is terrific! Live streaming is a god send! I have never missed any of my daughter's performances since she ban playing the flute back in grade 5 and I was worried about missing this. Then I heard about the live stream. Thank you!

Very nuanced advice to the two student quartets. Amazing to me how much SINGING Canadian Brass does of their music, in their own rehearsals. They said it was sometimes up to HALF of their rehearsal time.
