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.

It was a delightful evening. Commentary by Maureen is insightful with demonstration of particular notes and nuances to look out for before the actual rendition of the piece is much appreciated and engaging. Very educational, one can almost visualise the backdrop of the composer life when composing the piece.
