"We were very pleased with the Windy City Choral Festival. It was simply outstanding. I know MCI to be an organization dedicated to delivering extraordinarily high quality performance travel experiences with artistic, educational, and financial values all at the highest levels. I was very pleased with the experience that my singers got to share. Their interactions with the [other] singers were positive and encouraging. Z. Randall Stroope was all that I promised my singers I said he would be: brilliant, gracious, warm, expressive, a musician’s musician, a fine teacher, an empathic heart, a deep person, and a Maestro par excellence. Our stand-alone, featured performance was very special for us; the members of the ensemble thought they gave the best performance they ever had as members of the Bakersfield Master Chorale. We look forward to our next MCI tour."
