Thank you for giving us four wonderful presentations. Our students and staff are very grateful that you shared your experiences and music with us.
For many of us, living through your experiences will be the closest we will get to visiting the Andes.
Your presentation has given us fresh insights and connections to the Andean way of life and culture. Your joy and enthusiasm in performing Andean music was contagious. I was pleased to see our students spellbound by your many talents.
Thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to share with our students. I hope that you will inspire them to want to travel outside of our small world.
Your presentation has broadened their world view and brought us much pleasure.
