Thank you for such a memorable concert this weekend. I was strongly affectly by the richness of each piece, as the colors, mood, dynamic, and pattern transported the audience with performers to a specific realm of new sensations.  Images of intricate partnering, rhythmical phrasing, and sincere expressions remain imprinted in my mind. It was such a pleasure to see a piece unravel that knew so much about itself; never did I question a choice in direction or performance.  I feel grateful to have experienced work that has been thought over so carefully, and am inspired by your talents and visions.
