Library Music Discovery Concert by USCJ

3-19-23 West Regional

From a librarian: "The performance today was wonderful!  We were delighted to have the United Strings of Color Junior group perform.  They all did an amazing job.  The instrument zoo was a fan favorite.  We even enjoyed watching the adults try their hand at an instrument or two. We wish you all the best and would be delighted to have you back again."

One of the librarians wrote: " I want to say a hardy thank you to you for bringing such a talented group of musicians to Cary Regional Library. They were quite poised and extremely talented and it looks like they truly enjoy the music they create. I'm not sure if you need statistical information, but I counted 78 people in attendance, a fabulous turnout!"

Performance at the Gregg Museum of Art and Design

2-2-23 Gallery Opening

Roger Manley, Director and Curator: Ever since last Thursday evening's big event I have been hearing many, many fine and heartfelt comments about the performance that Felicia, Sterling and Tristen brought to the Gregg Museum. I was so absolutely delighted and grateful for the ambience, entertainment, and sheer aesthetic pleasure that the three of them generated for the nearly 330 people who attended the opening of the Aldwyth and True Likeness exhibitions. Your members are not only amazingly talented, but the warmth and open attitude in sharing their own joy of music with all the people listening made them feel as glowing a magnet amidst the swirl of activity as any bright hearth could. Everyone who strolled from one gallery to another could practically feel the generosity of spirit pouring out of the musicians as they passed by.
