"It was a pleasure meeting you on Sunday and I really enjoyed the concert. It actually blew my mind away and was so relaxing yet inspirational. Thank you for sharing your gift and working so hard for bringing The Harlem Chamber Players back year after year."
Peter Cooper

"The concert was wonderful, inspiring and very special. The space at St. Mary's provides such an intimate setting, that the music filled the air and every available space of the church. As we sat there, my colleague and I both agreed that this is the type of exposure we would like to provide to the students of Boys and Girls Harbor after school, as well as our Conservatory students."
