Festival Board Members, past and present, at the Volunteer Luncheon


Thank you again for a great festival -- everything that I saw went smoothly and seamlessly: a most successful transition!  Congratulations to you, the board, and all the volunteers.  I was most impressed to see the lady standing out in the library parking lot, directing the early comers around the construction and over the ice!  Thank you! 

I just wanted to let you know what an amazing festival experience my students and I had this year.  The adjudicators for the choir and hand bells were excellent and I was so grateful that they took the time to workshop with these young musicians.  My students came away feeling very proud and accomplished.  The volunteers that we encountered were kind, helpful, and accommodating and clearly enjoyed listening to the children perform.   Thank-you for all of your hard work and the dedication of your staff and volunteers.

We thank everyone who took the time to write us a note about their festival experience!
