2014 Tour Comments and Acknowledgments

The Cardinal Chorale was wonderful last night.  I’ve attended many of their performances and each seems better than the last. Tears and goose-bumps were certainly plentiful.

– Roscoe UMC finale

I wanted to let you know that Rebecca and I really enjoyed the concert last night.  You could feel the bonds and connection that you have formed with each of those kids.  I especially enjoyed the last set of songs.  I think that was the strongest singing I have ever heard from that group, and I have been going to that concert at least since 2010!

– Denise Wilden, Roscoe

Dear Cardinal Chorale Staff and Members,

     Thank you for the wonderful surprise during the final concert in Roscoe last Thursday night.  The concert was one of the best and I hope you felt all the hard work paid big dividends.

     The members of the Cardinal Chorale have been important people in my life over the years and I count past and present members among my most treasured friends.  Your music is always beautiful and uplifting; it makes the day brighter as the first sounds of each concert begin.  My only regret is the concert ends too soon and leaves me waiting for the next one.  I could listen to your glorious sounds every day – thank goodness there are CDs!

I appreciate each of you.

Your concert this morning was a lovely experience to witness.  You conducted a band of angels.

– Good Shepherd Home, Fostoria

Elaine and I had a WONDERFUL time hearing your kids sing, watching your expertise and talking with you and some of your EXCELLENT singers.  What you did with those elderly people was a gift of love the like of which I’ve never seen in a concert situation.  FANTASTIC!

Thank you, Cardinal Chorale staff and singers for all your help and songs of grace.  Thank you for a wonderful experience for all in the Dover area.  The Cardinal Chorale rose up from last year’s “bump” and soars forward in new ways.  God bless you this summer.

– Pastor John Wallace, First Moravian, Dover

Very beautiful music!  Really enjoyed it.  A very talented group of singers!  Congrats on a job well done, Ryan and the Cardinal Chorale!
