This just in from Stephen Fox, music director of the Clarion Music Society:


"Dear Dan, 


Thank you for lending your expertise, beautiful voice and great musicianship to the Rossi project.  I'm excited to be doing this concert with you."


From a member of the High Holiday quartet who worked with Cantor Pincus in 2010:  


"And I must tell you that I still think of our wonderful High Holy Days together.  I have now sung at the temple for several years, and I must tell you that this past season was such a tremendous experience for me.  My dad was Jewish, so we celebrated some of the holidays when I was growing up.  And this past season, with you as Cantor, was not only a wonderful musical experience for me, but also a meaningful spiritual experience.  I cannot thank you enough."
