I went expecting a great event, but it was absolutely fantastic. Jennifer Pinckney is a courageous role model, and her willingness to share deeply personal struggles with us made everyone in the Brooks center stronger. We will keep on moving! Thank you so much for sharing your courage and strength!

Outstanding! Excellent, we need more Jazz concerts like this, top quality musicians, all of them. The trio was almost better than the entire band together.

Dr. Hrabowski's presentation was excellent! I enjoyed his down-to-earth demeanor. He presented the crowd with a lot of food for thought. He was an excellent choice!

The concert was unbelievably fantastic. The singing group as a whole performed with quality and passion. The special instrumental guests seemed to enjoy themselves and play to perfection. The student soloists added much through excellent performances. I recommend any concert of the Clemson University Singers. The next opportunity to hear them is December 7 at 7 pm at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Clemson.
