North Shore Temple Emanuel
a Progressive Jewish Congregation
Here's some of the feedback we've received:
"Words cannot adequately describe the Musical Melange held at NSTE on Sunday 18th February ! There was a buzz of anticipation as we entered the hall but the outcome was beyond all expectation!
The voices of the choirs, individuals and groups were exceptional, taking us to all parts of the globe and inspiring us with beautiful harmonies. The instrumentalists were outstanding whether playing indivdually or as a band, and the pace at which they played was amazing, at times exhausting!! Huge credit must go to the musical directors, but their results would not have been accomplished without the devotion of all the people involved in the performance. The interval gave us time to mix and mingle with the delightful crowd and also to partake of a delicious supper, presented so attractively and tasting even better! . Finally, thanks to all the organisers, volunteers, and behind the scenes personnel who made the event run so smoothly and be so pleasurable for a full to capacity audience." - Michael & Lyn Perry
"This is a BRIEF THANK YOU, a thank you for the most wonderful night, the night of the MELANGE CONCERT. A gift to our Congregation, by a number of so dedicated, so gifted people. I had the rare BLUES yesterday, in an attempt to discard unnecessary old letters. Memories were crowding my mind, some tears shed. It all changed, when my son John and I came to the Temple, saw the many people, members of our congregation, who came in large numbers, to this event.
It was a delight. The choice of music, the superb rendition of the musicians, the arrangements presented, the expertise of Judy and Mark, the skills not seen before by me of so many other participants, who offered time, effort, to give us an unforgettable evening. There was also a wonderful atmosphere of HARMONY amongst the musicians and the choir.
The so efficient, dedicated VOLUNTEERS, those, who can always be relied upon to do their utmost , even to the superbly presented snacks, drinks, that really made this night so special.
Congratulations to you, to Judy, to ALL, who so generously shared their talents, their time for us, the appreciative listeners." - Eva Grinston
"Dear Mark and all, it was a great evening, and so much fun. Top quality all the way and plenty of variety. Thank you for having me and Coro Austral, they and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. And thank you Cantor Ted for playing with us. It was a pleasure to work with you." - Margot McLaughlin
"Thank you all for a most satisfying Concert! Thank you, Ted, for your excellent accompanying and gracious work ethic.
It's always a huge pleasure to come over to North Shore to collaborate with you!
Many many thanks for including us.
Much love." - Andrea Catzel
"What a fantastic Melange experience last night!!! It was thoroughly enjoyable, impressively entertaining, fun, eclectic, well run and showcased many talents. The feedback at intermission and at the end was nothing but positive. For those who had not yet had the pleasure of experiencing your expertise, they were in awe. Amazing event. It certainly reinforced, yet again, our outstanding community. " - Ruth-Anne Cohn
