The concert and Master Class that were "free and open to the public" were together an extraordinary opportunity to not only hear these extremely talented performers but to watch them "up close and personal" as they helped each student in the Master Class get the precise one-on-one counsel and encouragement they needed at that moment. Mr. Pfortmiller especially personified a master teacher

The festival was great. There were great films, foods, and prices. House Jazz, one of the film which depicted prison system, was emotionally appealing drama.

Much anticipated, on my part. Glad I went. We needed his lesson in history to remind us of the reasons for the status quo. I think we are lucky to have his upbringing amongst the blacks, shape his view, to highlight the culture of cruelty. Good man, liked his style of presentation.

I enjoyed the jazz music of the young musicians and faculty, and will try to support this talent for the many years to come.
