I can't find anything bad to say about this show. Everyone, especially the male and female leads, were outstanding. Also, the dancing and acrobatics were very impressive

Loved seeing (and hearing) Patty - the acoustics were so crisp. Great format with the round-robin style performances. #useyourvoicetour

It was such a unique experience, the fact that no cameras or recording devices weren't allowed and we were seated made all the difference in how genuine the show was! It was my first time seeing Maynard and it felt like an honor! Super rad!

First time to attend something for the University like this, incredible event. Wasn't too long, appreciated the brief introduction and formally setting made me feel proud to belong here. Choir was wonderful as well.
