This was wonderful. I kept getting so many wonderful images in my head because of the music, especially during "Clair de Lune" right at the beginning. I also enjoyed getting the little tidbits of history concerning the pieces before each performance.

Absolutely loved it! I played the violin as a child - made me want to dust it off!

Carolina Chocolate Drops, I have to say that I discovered their music back in 2010 and I thought that what they did, how they performed and with the instruments they performed with was amazing. Their music is pure and historical, very genuine. They are very a very talented group of musicians and seeing them in person was great. Love their music, I feel so blessed not to be stuck on just one genre of music and that I can stand to listen to almost anything and enjoy it.
Thank You Carolina Chocolate Drops for this one of a kind opportunity. Had a great time. I would also like to thank those who were responsible for bringing them to our small town and University. Go UMHB

I and my son enjoyed this very very much. He got to talk to the actors on the Sunday showing and was very excited about it.

I did not agree with anything she taught. She tried too hard to explain the Bible away, saying that they were only for that time for those people. That is wrong.
