READ WHAT THE TEACHERS SAY
“I think Too Hot To Handel will be an annual event for the group!”
“How fun, wonderful job. It was truly a moving experience for myself and my students.”
“We came to the dress rehearsal today of Too Hot To Handel, and let me say BRAVO. How fun! Wonderful job – it was truly a moving experience for myself and my students. We enjoyed it so much.”
“The vast majority of my students have never been to the Detroit Opera House (some have never been downtown…) The ornateness of the architecture and interior design of the DOH left my chattering students speechless - THEY chose to walk slowly to “take it all in!” That in itself was quite some experience. But, at the onset of the program – when Roderick Dixon began to sing – as well as the chorus, the soloists, the piano playing et al – well, my students were totally captivated. What a joy to witness such joy!”
“I think, however, to best describe the effect this performance had on my students, I must share with you what the young lady behind me said. At intermission, she tapped me on my shoulder and stated,” “This is my first time here. This is my first time at a concert. I have been crying! It is so beautiful.” I was stunned and indeed, her eyes were filled with tears. (This young lady is in the 6th grade – 11 years old).”
