The performance was so much fun and the young people were absolutely amazing. You couldn't walk away without being inspired and uplifted. I hope they come back to San Francisco next year!

What an upbeat and inspirational evening! I doubt Davies has experienced many other events where everyone was on their feet moving along with the performers. The only problem was the usual one at Davies...acoustics. The chorus was inadequately...continued
