Dear NOISE Members,
Thank you for the wonderful presentation you did at our school! Our students enjoyed the performance tremendously. For many of them, your group has provided the only exposure they have ever had to the beauty of opera. When I discussed your upcoming performance with our students in the library, they remembered the previous performances you had done for us—some of them remembered the story line for “The Magic Flute” better than I did! Our staff is raving about you, too. One of them commented on how well geared your presentation was to the audience you were performing for. We watched as students were enthralled by your beautiful singing and your lively acting. Once again, thank you for coming to Fairmount Park.
Very Sincerely,
Heidi Porter
Librarian Fairmount Park Elementary

Dear NOISE Members,
Today, as my third graders walked to the music room, they serenaded me with “The Bell Chorus” ...“this music is magic, so enchanting to hear”... Indeed it is, and so is NOISE... a magical experience for our students. Thank you for another exciting, beautiful performance.
Sincerely,
Bette Margelli
