We had the most wonderful audience; they understood our needs and wishes and created a very helpful and sincere atmosphere to enable us to perform on the highest level, without tensions or uneasy feelings. We enjoyed the performance, the reactions, the laughing at some of my comments. A wonderful afternoon. Thanks to Connie and her thoughtful preparations it became a sincere highlight and memorable concert and afternoon.
