The cast is vocally strong throughout and the principals are backed by a fantastic-sounding group of supporting characters…. The ensemble of guitar, bass, drums and keyboard is top notch. This production clearly benefits from a skilled creative team… including musical director Piero Bonamico.
I want to personally thank you for all your efforts with the Chorus, and the leaps and bounds that have been accomplished with you as Director. You came at a huge time of transition for the Chorus and certainly re-energized and brought a breath of fresh air into the chorus and the singers, which led to its continued success. Thanks so much for all your efforts, you’re a great Director and Entertainer.
...Vocally Bonamico is always attractive, and in songs like the Kurt Weill- Maxwell Anderson “September Song” and the Lerner and Loewe “On the Street Where You Live,” his mellifluous tenor was applied expressively and attractively… the meaning of each song clearly conveyed to the receptive standing-room-only house.
Our concert was so much fun to sing. Not that any of the others haven’t been. But this was challenging for an alto. What fun.
Honestly you brought me back to music in a time in my life when I desperately needed it, it may not have seemed like it but it was an incredible gift... You should be really proud of the legacy you left in Vermont.
I just wanted to say thank you SO much for everything you have done for me. You have no idea how much I appreciate everything you have done. You really are a blessing to me, and I am so grateful to have met you. My life is changing so much, and I want to thank you for that.
You Piero are the reason that I grew to not just love music, but love performing it. I can’t imagine the course my life would have taken without your knowledge, wisdom, and guidance. You mean a great deal to many people, and I can’t even begin to express the gratitude I have for you and your teachings.
Superb performance. You and your team did an excellent job with the production elements— it was strong musically, riveting emotionally and imaginative and edgy visually. Terrific!
Hi Piero, Peter is in as Tobias. We are sooooooooooo excited!!!! Thank you again for helping him prepare. We both felt he did well and no question your coaching had something to do with that. I am so grateful you were available to help him. You are an awesome teacher. Thank you ever so much.
What an AWESOME show I witnessed this evening! I have marveled at the organization, the respect for everyone’s time, and the skill with which you navigate all of the challenges. I was proud and honored to be in the audience this evening, and, as a parent, grateful. Thank you all so very much!
