"It was a delight and an honor to be involved in this year's Serenade! Festival. The wonderful array of voices from around the world - their enthusiasm and beauty in singing - and the marvelous repertoire that was performed made this Festival a truly inspiring time for me. Congratulations on a great event in every way!"
