Thank you so much for the wonderful concert you all gave us last Friday evening. We thought that everything went perfectly and we know that the audience (including us) truley enjoyed hearing your superb renditions of so many favorite songs from the era that many in our audience remember with particular fondness. I know that Genevieve joins me in letting you know that it was a pleasure to work with you in the months leading up to Friday's event. With so many programs to coordinate and oversee, it is especially appreciated when performers and managers are as easy to communicate with and cooperative about providing us with material as you were. We look forward to working with you in the future.
