5 of 5 A Beautiful Program Beautifully Performed July 16, 2010
Reviewer: Kenton Kravig from Irving, TX United States  
The first piece to catch my eye was Willcocks' unparallelled arrangement of America, and it is beautifully performed here. The program has a pleasing variety and the music is sensitively directed and performed. Highly recommended as a Memorial Day or July 4th gift!
