Third-Sunday Testimonials

We know you will love the Third-Sunday Season. But don’t take our word for it. See what your friends and neighbors have to say!

As someone who enjoys coming early to a concert to read the program notes, I was grateful for the excellent no-nonsense program book, complete with translations (except for the Mozart aria). Clear and detailed program books are another hallmark of this group.  – Winslow Rogers, Sacramento Choral Calendar Review

We sat in the audience and could feel the huge response to the program. Thank you for the time and attention placed in the selection of music and its execution. Perfection. Love Gloria and 12 days!

And thank you for the usual smooth behind the scenes organization that made the entire event seamlessly perfect. Your volunteers all sang your praises and we, in particular, had such a good time.  Thank you! Feel good tonight.
~ Jeanne and George

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed this concert!!! The violinist was easily the best violinist I have heard in 50 years of concerts. Truly a treasure. The program was delightful.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to have heard such incredible musicians and music….My husband’s (the cellist) birthday was PERFECT.  THANK YOU!!

“The personal contact with the artists is wonderful, Aileen James is warm and thorough in the interviews.  Ken Hardin is great in everything he does.  The quality of the programs and the musicians is excellent”
~Betty Jane and George Comegys

“I don’t use the words “jaw-droppingly amazing” and “phenomenal” lightly, but as an amateur pianist, I was simply past the ability to find other words to describe the, well, phenomenal performance of Joel Fan at the Seventh-day Adventist Church on Sunday…. But it’s not just Joel Fan who deserves praise. Twin Cities Concert Association (TCCA) consistently provides inspiring, thought-provoking, and professional concerts throughout their concert season. That they manage to book artists like Joel Fan in a small community like ours is, on its own, an inspired feat.    “ ~Ken Getz

“Kudos to TCCA for its concert last Sunday, featuring the piano/violin duo of Aileen James and Sherban Lupu. The near-capacity audience cheered for the virtuoso playing of the two world-class musicians. During the pre-concert discussion, Aileen mentioned that her goal, in approaching any new piano, was to do her best to make it the “happiest piano it can be.”

“TCCA’s Grotrian piano is a mighty happy piano on its own, but I’m guessing it was even happier Sunday, during the beautifully performed concert. Congratulations to TCCA, Ms. James and Mr. Lupu for an excellent concert.”
~Ken Getz, The Union blog

“It certainly was a sublime concert.  We are grateful that InConcert Sierra is producing such exquisite fare for our local community.”
~Julia and Mark Amaral (Oct 2009)

“Grace Fong was remarkable. Thanks to the board and everyone involved with TCCA for creating these opportunities to see/hear such high quality performances.”
~Pat Barrentine

“Went to a fabulous piano concert today in Grass Valley put on by In Concert.Sierra.  Grace Fong is unbelievable. We are lucky to have so many really high quality cultural events in
our community.”
~Ed Thomas

”TCCA/In Concert Sierra’s concert last Sunday was just phenomenal. I never expected to hear such amazing playing here in the “country.” Not only did Roberto (violin) and Robert (piano) play brilliantly, but it was much more than that. It was an almost humble performance–everything they played was outrageously difficult.”
~Ken Getz (Facebook)

“Last Sunday was the very best performance of any [local] event we have ever attended. Roberto again made his violin sing and Robert was superb.”
~Harlow Rothert

“My day was blessed with an easy task and music that fed my soul.”
~Karen Smith (volunteer)

“I attended the fantastic concert with Roberto Cani and Robert Thies yesterday.  I want to bless you and thank you with all my heart for bringing this incredible music to our community. I would never have this opportunity otherwise. I also love the Sierra Master Chorale and I’m on your mailing list now and I hope to see a lot more of this here.”
~Marina Bokelman (Left on phone machine at office.  When we returned her call, she told us it was the most “transcendental music experience she has ever had.”)

“Thanks for the great job that you’re doing to bring the best music in the county (or is that nation?) to our area.”
