Dear John,
On behalf of the FGCU Bower School of Music Vocal Area, I most heartily thank you for providing the excellent master class last Friday, taught by the talented singers/teachers Stephen Morscheck and Nina Yoshida Nelsen. They were positive, worked well with our pupils, and helped each to improve his/her performance. It is generous of the Southwest Florida Symphony to assist our growing vocal programs in this way! I have had a very positive response from both students and our teachers after the master class—everyone is still talking about it!

Also, please give a HUGE thanks to Maestro Nir for giving free tickets to many of our students who were able to attend the performance Saturday! I truly enjoyed hearing the work again and thought the chorus, soloists and orchestra executed a moving performance of this prominent master work under his baton. In addition, I am proud of my colleague Trent Brown for preparing the chorus so well!

Best regards,
