"Daniel and Steve,
Thank you so much for bringing Elliot to performance and lecture for the students today. It was an honor to have a musician of this level interact with the students and open their minds to so many musical and social ideas. I could have personally listened to him speak all day. He is a tremendous talent and inspiration and I appreciate all of your time and interest in sharing him with us today."
