A really nice experience that I would recommend to others!

Matthew Mehaffey is a wonderful conductor and has the ability to pull a large group of people together in a short period of time and present a great performance.

For someone who had been away from reading music for years it was a huge challenge to keep up with the musical verbiage but at the same time really fun. The professional way that you lead us was a special delight. I had forgotten how much security comes from having confidence in a musical conductor.

Being in this chorus was a phenomenal experience! It taught me quite a bit about myself and my abilities that I had not yet discovered, as far as what I thought I could or could not do, musically.
