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.

Great set of shows, hilarious, thought provoking, and moving. It was so hard to believe they were student directed.
