Our thanks to the staff and students at Good Shepherd Montessori School for sharing their reactions to the trio's presentation:
I think the concert was really, really awesome. I liked the piano the most.
I noticed the violinist and cellist were very twitchy when they played. Their music was very pretty.
It was really good. I really liked the performance. They are amazing musicians.
I enjoyed the violinist's interesting arm movements. I really liked the first piece they played. I liked the concert a lot.
I really liked how the trio included the cello, violin, and piano. Those are the instruments we have lessons for here at our school. I liked how after each piece they talked about it. I really enjoyed it. I'm glad I went.
It was really cool. Being a fellow cellist, watching a master at work was very intriguing.
The fastest song was really awesome. All the songs were really cool. I play the piano too and I liked the piano part a lot.
It was pretty fun listening to the music. Some of the music was very sudden, with a big booming sound.
I liked how the pianist could go very fast. I also play the piano and I thought that the last song was really cool because all the musicians were going very fast.
I thought it was great. My favorite part was the song that went really fast. I've never seen a concert like that up close. The musicians were really good.
They were very coordinated and very talented.
