"Once again an outstanding concert in a beautiful venue! Please keep on giving us such wonderful music in your beautiful setting!" Charlotte
"Le Petit Salon de Musique continues to provide outstanding programs featuring truly accomplished musicians. The intimacy of the setting, and the virtuosity of the performers, make it a unique experience for people who truly love good music. We have been attending since the Salon's inception, re-arranging our own busy schedules whenever necessary in order not to miss a single concert." Susan and Paul Glatzer
"On December 18, 2011 we attended the concert at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship which featured Alexandria and Friends. It was our first concert at the Fellowship. We experienced one of the most exciting, enjoyable and musically competent concerts we have attended in many years. Alexandria Lee's piano performance was professional, beautiful and electrifying. The individual soloists on the violin, cello, viola and flute displayed outstanding competency. The finale quartet was nothing more than breathtaking. We look forward to attending future concerts." Deanna and Ted Schwartzman
"The concerts are absolutely superb. The performers are first rate and the venue is great. Keep it up!" George
"I've attended two of the concerts, and have to say that I was amazed at their professionalism. The music is wonderful and the atmosphere cozy. I could listen to the string quartet every week-they were magnificent!" Diana
"I just wanted to say that I was so glad I made it to the concert (just in the nick of time!!) because the performance was absolutely wonderful. I commented to another that I wouldn't be surprised if people somewhere, in other venues, etc., pay up to 10 times what we did yesterday to hear such a concert (Clueri Quartet). It was just amazing. Thank you for continuing to bring us such talented artists, at an irresistibly affordable price." Carol Castillo
