“You both really did do us proud tonight. I can’t thank you enough for giving us all such an uplifting and totally memorable and enjoyable concert tonight. You really sent us all off on an amazing HIGH. We all had a tear when Sally Ann sang and filled the hall with such a beautiful sound. Wow, wow, wow! Your mini ‘concert was just magical so thank  you both for coming and performing so magnificently for us. Scott Joplin is always a real crowd puller and that last piece of Marco’s was sensational so it is a real big thank you from both of us to both of you. Marco’s Happy Birthday was pretty good too!”
