From the 2009 audiences:
“I was not able to attend one of your wonderful musical programs, but I saw & heard it two times on television. It was perfect, and a baby changes everything certainly is true when baby Jesus was born. Thank you and all your group for many hours of time. It is a real blessing for our community at Christmas time. God bless you all.” NOTE: this viewer enclosed a $20 check to YCAP
“Thank you for another wonderful concert. You and your group are truly amazing! It is so good to get out of the rush of the season, and to concentrate on the Reason for it. I look forward to your music every Advent. May God continue to bless you and the Cantata Choir.”
“[We] are reflecting on this eighth day of Christmas and the ministry / gift / blessing of your ministry of music through the Advent / Christmas … season. Your blessing the Lord of our lives, the gifts of singing / instruments, the vision of children praising — we thank and bless you for the hours, phone calls, e-messages — you are embraced with our prayers again today. And YES — the energy, the eclectic gifts of your musicians — the passion to share, the offering to YCAP — a baby – and the BABY — our Savior, our Love — changes all. God bless your lives, your faith, your gifts of music to proclaim our Love!”
From a singer in our “CD” audience in Minnesota:
“Kudos! Talent! Congrats! Wow! Good job! Great program! I’m thinking of your group & performance – but yes – even your printed program is excellent & your choices fit together & build & your spoken word – very impressive. You’ve had to build this ‘right’ from the start to get this many people to come together for this many performances for this many years. Lots of talent and with such good causes. You provided those wonderful feelings that only come when, in spite of smiling & nodding ‘yes’ – tears still come. God loves you, and so do we!” NOTE: A contribution to YCAP, and a gift to support the Cantata Choir were enclosed with this letter!
