  1. I attended Duquesne for a year and a half in the early 1970s. I am sure I attended worship in that chapel, but I haven’t even thought of it in decades. Congratulations to Simon.

  2. I imagine that was a stunning performance. Big congrats to Simon – and big kudos to you for supporting all forms of art in your community!

  3. Dr. Ruth, Simon was terrific! Thanks so much for giving us permission to see the organ. Dorothy and Hugh
