Audience Quotes:

Exaltation! Biblical Stories through Music - Audience Quotes:

"It was quite simply the best concert ever! {Exaltation! Biblical Stories through Music} I have known the symphony a long time and this was spectacular in a long list of spectacular concerts."

"I so admired all that you accomplished with it--the theme, finding the unusual works for the first part of the concert to carry out the theme, that incredible young genius violinist {Stephen Waarts} who played a difficult work from memory!"

"Byram's {Amick Byram} finale, "You'll Never Be the Same" was outstanding, and the encore "Masada" was electrifying."
