Audience Testimonials
Kudos on last night's performance. My husband & I were 1st time Present Music goers. Went with another "virgin" couple. The 4 of us met working on the Clean Water Act of 1973. Like a shy boy, my husband admitting he wanted to be the guy playing the "water." Best musical show I've experienced since The Silk Road Ensemble With YoYo Ma. Loved the layers of performance texture. -

Thank you so much for all your hard work on the Water concert. I had a wonderful time. It was one of the best events I’ve been to in a long time. Finally, something different! -

I happened to be at the right place, right time. Not only did I get to prance around with others with a fish that I had painted on top my head before the concert...I ended up getting a ticket to this wonderful show. The direction: very abstract and creative I must say. -

I LOVED last night's performance and left the hall with water sloshing in my head. The dancers flowed on and off stage like waves, the singers and instrumental musicians sung swimmingly, and an amazing new composition scored for (among other things) water tank and glasses of ice water made for a memorable and magical evening. Thank you! -
