 -----------------------------------------------. . . and after David & Ginger's mini-residency at Muskingum University in Ohio, Februar 2 & 3, 2018, some feedback:"It was really exciting for our campus community to have you here to share your knowledge and passion for early American music! It is really apparent you both love what you do! Everyone I have talked to has said great things about the concert and/or presentation! . . . It was especially cool because we drew in faculty from across campus, and some community folks I have not seen before."----David A. Turrill, DMA Chair, Department of Music & Director of Bands
