An astounding debut for Dr. Glendening at NIU! Weaving together technology and live performance, Dr. Glendening made me hear the trombone in an entirely new way. My mind was blown!

Bravissimo! Beautifully sung and performed. The singers were full of energy and charm, the pianist superb. A great preview for the full opera, to be produced in the spring.

Jolly, merry, a good time had by all! All the players were terrific, but a special shout out to Antonio on piano, Adam on sax, Matt vocals. We missed Reggie, but the group carried on quite well without him!

This was another wonderful concert! You cannot be in a bad mood after one of these steelband concerts. The band members are genuinely having so much fun that it affects the whole audience. My husband plays saxophone and was especially impressed with the soloist. These are definitely our favorite concerts with such talented musicians!

Excellent concert. Talented group of musicians. A very appropriate tribute to Al O'Connor.
