"I want you to know that Dan did a magnificent job conducting the workshop and performing the dedication concert this past weekend. Dan also played the 11am Sunday service and the congregation gave him a standing ovation. He brought many to tears with his deeply moving and creative hymn interpretations. He is an artist of the highest order."

"Dan did a wonderful job both in presenting the organ in the workshop and in the concert. He never crossed the line in making the event too much a commercial, but he was very clear that the instrument was a Rodgers, and he gave ample reasons why he considers it to be the premiere instrument in its class. The organ was exciting, and several people commented that they had no idea that an organ could be so versatile."

"His manner with all the groups he dealt with was impeccable. He met them where they were, engaged them, helped them and made them laugh while doing it! Dan led the workshop sessions and presented the concert artfully, even managing transitions with consummate skill! Of course, his command of subject matter and performance at the organ were also stupendous!"
