I just wanted to send you a note to say that your arrangements went off in spectacular fashion for our Family Holiday program at the end of December. Our in-house holiday music selection is quite lean, a bit dowdy and serious, but your charts brought a fresh excitement to the familiar pieces. We really enjoyed it…
Charlotte Craff Artistic Operations Manager Utah Symphony Orchestra

The Racine Symphony Orchestra just played to a sold out and very enthusiastic audience featuring an entire evening of your music. In addition to the many appealing Christmas arrangements, your original scores of “Hot Santa” and Timeless Treasures” were winningly performed by a talented local singer. Largely due to the strength of your delightful music Jim, this was the most successful Holiday Pops concert of my tenure. I can’t thank you enough for your role in a concert experience that was so satisfying for both the audience and the musicians. BRAVO!
Pasquale Laurino Artistic Director/Conductor Racine Symphony Orchestra
