“Red Baraat was fun, entertaining and made the audience feel the music – not every band in the world can do that. They made me feel like I was part of the band!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Red Baraat concert. It’s great to be at a PAC event where everyone is up on their feet dancing and having fun! Red Baraat’s energy was amazing and they put on a truly great show. I would go see them again in a heartbeat if I could.”
“Hilary was so gracious after the concert, answering questions and talking with Hannah about the music she is working on,” Martin said. “She couldn’t believe that someone like Hilary would be interested in her and what she plays. It really was a highlight for her and as parents, we are grateful she had that experience here in Hamilton.”
Twelve-year-old Hannah Martin attended the educational outreach program by Hilary Hahn at Corvallis Schools as well as the concert that evening. Her father, Doug Martin, said, “For Hannah, it was a bucket-list experience. She has watched Hilary play on YouTube for the president and the pope, and then, here she was playing for her as well.”
“We have loved every show we’ve attended, but by far, our favorite was watching the guitar trios perform. Thanks for a wonderful Valentine’s date night. The musicians in both trios were so awesome, we had to take them home with us by buying several CDs! “
“What a treat! It was wonderful to hear the unique approach that each musician brings to the guitar. It truly was amazing to hear them blend their different styles in surprising ways during the second half of the show.”
“Attending the Mark O’Connor concert in December was a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays. The musical merging of so many talented voices and instruments with an Appalachian flavor made the evening unforgettable for us.”
“The songwriter’s workshop with Vienna Teng was awesome! I learned so much from her. She’s inspired me now to work on all those pieces that I’ve started but haven’t finished.”
"Volunteering for three years at the Bitterroot Performing Arts Council’s box office, “has turned out to be an excellent opportunity to learn and explore music and performances very different from those back home.”
“Working with Sweet Honey in the Rock (during an educational outreach with Hamilton High School choir students) was awesome. It was a refreshing break from normal choir class and was nice to hear how passionate they were about their music. They put so much soul into it. We were really impressed.”
