Responses from Film Hosts:

"...a life-changing experience for my choirs and our audience. Stillwater has captured the essence of Lauridsen's genius in a film that reminds us of what defines beauty...sure to inspire a generation of choral musicians and audiences alike."
-Derek Weston
Music Educator and Conductor

"The screening was absolutely fantastic, the choir performance outstanding and the film very well received...a highlight of the festival!"
-Nicol Matt, Conductor
Mozart Festival, Johannesburg, South Africa

"Volti's screening of Shining Night was a wonderful event, a shared experience that brought our audience closer to the process of creating music and thus closer to us. We feel that seeing it together made us a stronger and more connected community. It was a very special night that people will be talking about for a long time to come."
-Barbara Heroux, Executive Director
Volti 'Singing Without A Net'
San Francisco, California

"Fabulous! We were thrilled by Shining Night,
taking us to a world we had never been before. What a treat to get to know Lauridsen with his elegant music and simple life style. After the show, 60 singers from two choirs took the stage. It was fantastic! Bringing your film to our community was one of our most satisfying pleasures."

-Mike and Barbara Getz

"The Greater Middletown Chorale was extremely pleased to present the Connecticut premiere of Shining Night, and greatly appreciates your generosity and support- the poster, the trailer, web site support and letters of encouragement.

As I watched the film's magic sweep over the rapt audience in Wesleyan University's Memorial Chapel, I was struck with the effect of the film's power and beauty. Following the screening was silence, then the lights came on and the room burst into applause and rose in standing ovation. The crowd was so transformed that strangers were speaking and even hugging! It was as if goodness had spilled down from the screen over everyone."

-Joyce Kirkpatrick
Greater Middletown Chorale, CT

"The film was a wonderful insight into the man.
While it at first seemed daunting to follow the vocal performances in the film, the immediacy of a live performance really created the total emotional experience of the beauty of his music. Many came forward and said the entire experience was so moving and brought tears to their eyes."
-Jane Primrose
'Music In The Mountains' Singer
Board Member, Nevada Theater, Nevada City, California
