HERE ARE SOME COMMENTS WE'VE RECEIVED
here for a full review)
From an Attendee: I was totally
captivated by the speakers! I can't believe I've been a member for 25
years and never really seen Nancy Tucker perform outside of a critique
session...WOW you are totally amazing!! Marci Geller's
piano voicing was truly unique and Jen Chapin.... I'm in Love!!!
Why is this woman not splashed all over National Media? She's gorgeous,
has a standout voice and a Bass Player who is a true ARTISTE!!
Maybe I'm outta touch but there was some real talent in that place
and I learned quite a bit. Alex Forbes, I missed you before,
but you gave me a breakthrough on how big records start as simple songs
--- what freedom you gave me !
Thank you for a great day. Much Love to all who keep CSA
alive, we are still the best kept secret between Boston and
From an Attendee and Exhibitor: Big congratulations and
thanks to Bill and Kay and everyone who made the conference such a
success. It's amazing that after all that work--and that of the Mystic
concert series--you of the L.U.N.C.H. gang were still able close the day
with a great show. A lot of effort clearly went into making the day
special, and it was all well worth it.
I had a great time and certainly benefited in many ways...It was
great to see Alex Forbes again. Jen Chapin was a pleasure to meet and
chat with, and she and her band had a powerful and memorable
performance. I really think that you could have made it a
two-day affair and still not have given people enough time to take
advantage of all the features of the conference
From the Founder of CSA: To Bill and everyone who
attended the Conference, I was extremely pleased and proud to be part of
CSA on Saturday. Bill , you did a fabulous job in putting this together.
Thank you for my award and all you have done over the many many years we
have been friends. For those who didn't make the Conference, you truly
missed this best event CSA has ever had. I hope a steering committee
will come forward to continue this work. Count me in.
From an Attendee:
To everyone who helped put on the 25th Anniversary
Celebration--THANK YOU! My partner and I had a wonderful day
and enjoyed meeting and talking with everyone in attendance. ; You did a
great job! I am quite happy to be a member of this organization and will
make every effort to attend more meetings in the future. Enjoy your
From an Attendee: Fantastic job last
weekend ! Wonderful wonderful event...
From a Presenter/Performer: Saturday's conference was
wonderful! Like summer camp for songwriters, but without the
camping. Definitely filled the well for me. Made me very proud to be a
part of CSA to see what we can accomplish together! If you
would like to see this happen again next year, shout out what you would
like to help with, then get involved. Special thanks to all who helped
make our 25th anniversary conference possible!
From a Presenter/Performer: I just
wanted to write and tell you what a wonderful job you did at the
conference (and all the months preceding it). It ran really
smoothly and it was clear you put a lot of work into it. The
award was a complete surprise. Thank you! Thanks also for
including me in the evening show. It was a lot of fun and a great group
to play for.
From a Presenter/Performer:
This weekend was A-MAZ-ING!!!!!
The CT Songwriting & Performance Conference was an inspiration on every
conceivable level. Not only was I privileged to speak and perform to
such attentive audiences, but I got to witness first-hand how
collaborative efforts strengthen any cause. Too many wonderful talents
to name, but notably; Nancy Tucker-if you have a chance to see her-GO,
Alex Forbes-great spirit, great advice, great songwriter, Jen Chapin-no
words, she brought me to tears-literally! Scott Sivakoff and of course,
Bill, Kay and Melody Pere, the LUNCH Ensemble. Check out

From an Attendee and Volunteer: Thanks once again for making the Conference happen. I
got a lot out of it and thought it was very well done. It's obvious you
put a lot of time & care into planning it.
