    Dr. Jan: I want to thank you for the experience, the exquisite thrill that is your interpretation of the Holst Chaconne from the band suite. I had never really heard it, nor had my system played it, until your rendition. Others lack the power, the drama you provide. Sublime. I am and will remain a devotee, awaiting anxiously your next recording. I would love to hear the concert organ in person, but I fear I might expire. p.s. if I could be so bold, a request: the Gigout tocatta ☺

    Congratulations on your Emmy Nominations! I met you just before the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts opened as I was working on the Development Team raising funds. Joan Israelite and I had lunch with you at Webster House. So happy for your recognition! Well deserved.

    Dear Jan, Many, many heartfelt congratulations on the triple Grammy award nomination for your latest CD! (Which I'm loving listening to as I type!) I am so thrilled for you! You are an artist of the highest caliber, made even more profound and meaningful by your kind, genuine spirit. Such a treat to see you both this summer at OHS Dallas and in Kansas City in October. I am honored and humbled by your support and encouragement. I'll look forward to hearing about the Grammy WIN in a few months! Continued best wishes to you! Jonathan

    Jan, Just have to tell you how much I am enjoying your CD of piano hymns I bought when Lisa and I went to your concert. I have to listen to it at LEAST twice a day and more often most times. I am hoping you will do more hymn CDs, either on piano or organ, but I do esp. enjoy the piano for hymns.

    Hi Jan, I didn't have an opportunity to greet you after your Meyerson performance and hymn sing last Tuesday at the OHS convention. For me, it was THE highlight of the week. Thank you for your fine musicianship and for your sensitive programming and registering of Opus 100. It was a pleasure meeting you, and I look forward to the next time we meet. All best, David

    Hello Dr. Kraybill. I have played piano for about 65 years. My teacher was also an organist, but I never had formation in organ. You playing and knowledge of the instrument are so pleasingly delivered to us. Thank you. Should I decide to have a few lessons at 71 years old, I will seek your guidance!

    Dear Jan, I sure enjoyed and very impressed with your presentation at the Village Church on Sunday. My wife deAnn who passed away on Jan 17th of this year as a result of Alzheimer's. Happy to note you are a K-Stater! deAnn & I met at KSU back in the 50’s and were married at the Village Church in 1960. I had her funeral at the church and made a request to have Elisa Bickers play the KSU fight song,Almamonter. and The Wabash CB at the conclusion of the service. We both were very involved with KSU over the years and I have always enjoyed all kinds of Organ music.. I wished I had known about you as I would have requested you to play the organ if possible. You are very talented and dedicated to your profession! Did you happen to know the Deckert Family in Colby. I grew up on a farm near Holton, Ks. Several members of our family attended K-State. Best wishes and be careful on that Harley! Go Cats, Sam Moore

    Dear Dr. Kraybill, I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to greet you after the Super Bowl Sunday concert. The opening light show was a wonderful surprise, and my, didn't the organ roar! I've heard that organ before, but I had forgotten how powerful it is. I so loved the Sweelinck; for some reason it brings a tear to my eye -- in a good way. Thank you for a lovely program and wonderful program notes as well! Sincerely, Robert Carter, Jefferson City.
