Your program / workshop last night was presented perfectly! ... Your approach to sharing information with colleagues, and your sense of humor and your humility, make for an engaging and interesting presentation. From your personal experience you gave us wonderful insights into how to approach practice, and to improve to reach that Excellent mark. Even though most of our members will not need to perform at your level, your tools to enhance practice are still quite welcome and usable. ... Kudos to you for all that you do and especially for what you share with our chapter and our community, we are all so very appreciative of that.”

Am still in awe of your electrifying playing tonight on Saint-Saëns' Organ Symphony. Kansas City is so fortunate to call you their own. You're up there with The Count, Ella Fitzgerald, and Joyce DiDonato. ... But what impresses me the most is your real humility. ”

Icing on the cake? Over 100 musicians performing Strauss, with none other than Jan Kraybill thrilling us all on the organ. With the inimitable Maestro Michael Stern conducting the Musicians of the Kansas City Symphony. This entire ensemble is an absolute treasure.”

I’ve just spent the morning in the company of Jan Kraybill, Jehan Alain, Paul Manz, Leo Sowerby et al—listening thrice to your new Pro Organo CD Marked for Grace. ... If I may make one observation: your playing here is even more spacious and free than yours in your recent recitals I’d heard in Texas and online streaming. This is a rare quality to encounter in produced recordings and one I hadn’t noticed before in your CDs. ... Just one more reason I’m in the Jan Kraybill fan club. Sowerby: whenever an artist records one of the Sowerby chestnuts—like Carillon, I inevitably ask myself—does the world needs another Carillon (or Pageant, or Comes Autumn Time, or Fast and Sinister, or Air with Variations, or Flute Stops etc etc), when over 60 of Sowerby’s ninety-three organ works have never been made available through recordings? So remember it’s a tough audience member who avers that the world is a better place for having your rendering of Carillon in it. And that goes double for Malabar, which I think has only before been recorded by Judith Hancock. In both works, the expansive “Delius through stained glass” breadth of expression that the composer looked for in others’ interpretations is present in abundance. Now I think I’ll hit replay again. Congratulations and thank you!”

I so enjoyed your dedication recital in Omaha tonight. The way you spoke about the instrument and the community, and the idea of including a young person at the console, was inspired and inspiring. ”
