Dear Gold Coast Trio:

Many thanks for a lovely afternoon of beautiful music! As one happy audience member said, "It's so good to hear REAL music!"

Your selections were perfect for the Library audience and John's commentary was just right - everyone learned something new about composers and enjoyed their music, too. Nancy Brothers, Coordinator of Programming and Public Relations.

12.27.10Trio performs at a Memorial Service at Three Crowns Retirement Home, Evanston, IL

an email to tell you how we thought things went with the music at our mom's memorial service at Three Crowns Park on December 12th.
Bottom line - it (the music trio) was wonderful. Mom would have loved all the pieces you chose to play. The way we designed it was perfect to add some meditation time but still keep things going. I don't think I would change anything about the service and the party, and the music provided just the perfect backdrop.
Thank you again so much. Lee Anderson (and Peter, Pen and David)
