Prairie Debut’s 2019-20 touring artists

“The performance was well received by all (even a few in attendance who usually don’t appreciate classical music commented on how good the performance was). One comment of: “Best concert ever! Not just best of the season.” …. The performers were engaging and entertaining while speaking to the audience and the musical performance was fabulous!”

“The talent was amazing …. Such lovely young people to work with, and they were crowd pleasers, mixing right in and greeting everyone on their way out after the show. We had about 25 young piano students there as well as several teachers. The crowd responded really well to the question and answer period as there were many questions. Thank you for sending them out on tour.”
