“The Entire Performing Arts Educators Team,
Sincere thanks for a wonderful opportunity both for my students and me on Saturday. Words cannot describe the emotions and enjoyment that we all felt as a result of your efforts to put the show together. It was an experience that none of us will ever, ever forget. Thank you for allowing us to dream big:)” -Jill D., 2014
“The girls had such a good time, and the memory of performing at Carnegie will always be with them. How cool is that? Parents who joined us and parents who sent their kids off with us, are thanking us for such a positive experience. If you hadn’t made these trips so positive, I may not have continued along the PAE path. You’ve gone above and beyond in your support and encouragement. Your warmth and friendship have added so much.”- Fontaine D, 2016
“Thank you for an incredible weekend of celebrating the arts community in such a vibrant way. The Carnegie Hall experience will prove to be a highlight of my students’ high school careers.”- Jason S., 2015
"We enjoyed the performances immensely. What your organization does is fantastic, and we were happy to be able to see it unfold in such an historically significant concert hall. Again, thank you, and all the best to you and the Performing Arts Educators!”- Paul B., 2015
Words cannot express my gratitude for all of the folks who helped to make the debut performance of the Mansfield University Concert Choir in Carnegie Hall an unforgettable event. The performance ranks among the greatest thrills in my life as I watched the faces of those students experience a dream come true! We will never forget walking on that stage to a house full of cheering fans welcoming me and the Concert Choir to that prestigious hall. Literally, there were hundreds of alumni, parents, and friends of the Mansfield University choral program who came to support us as we experienced a life-time event. We all felt embraced by their presence and affection!
Thank you for all of your work behind the scenes!” -Peggy D., 2014
"It has taken me close to two weeks to formulate the words to adequately thank you and your team for the wonderful experience at the recent Carnegie Hall event.
Many of my students have never left Tompkins county, let alone been to a major metropolitan city or performed in a place more formal than our school auditorium. The opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall was a eye-opening and inspiration event for these young people. They now walk a little taller and hold themselves with a new confidence thanks to this experience. Additionally, this event, and the process of preparing and fundraising for it, has invigorated and reignited the community’s passion for the arts, especially our music department.
My sincerest gratitude to you and PAE is immense. Thank you.” -Alexander M., 2015
"The Scotland trip was such a tremendous hit, that I believe you have my dancers hooked. Our weekend in NY was also extremely successful. The kids had a fantastic time.
Thank you for making the PAE experiences so meaningful. You’re all very kind and welcoming!”- Fontaine D, 2015
We all enjoyed our Lincoln Center experience very much. Not only is PAE wonderful to work with, but we also enjoyed the company and experiences of meeting the directors and performers from the other schools. For my school to come together with such great talent is so wonderful. The positive, non-competitive experiences that you provide is priceless.
From the 2000 Sydney Olympics to Lincoln Center it has been a blessing working with you. Please know how important you are to many!”- Madeline B, 2015
