“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
