“Bravo, Bravo! I must write and let everyone who missed the Southwest Symphony program on Oct. 27 at the Cox Center [know it was] an evening long to be remembered. Words can’t even explain how wonderful it was. Even magnificent doesn’t even come close. I have attended symphonies and theaters in Europe, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco and many other states and have never seen or heard a finer program with dance, vocals and orchestra. It always amazes me the talent this small town has and how wonderful they all present it.” - Harold Tanner, The Spectrum

Thank you so much for such a fantastic performance tonight and for allowing my daughter to perform with ZYSO beforehand! I am still in awe at how incredible everything was and I wish I had bought tickets for both nights. Thanks, again, for sharing your awesome talents with us! - Heather Kearl
A quick message to thank the performers for last night’s concert of Handel’s Messiah. It was done with such reverence to the sacred message. The orchestra, chorus and soloists were superb. I’ve attended multiple local performances of the Messiah. This was the best. - Michael Larsen
