The Arts Testimonials

Harrison's interest in musical theatre all began with your encouragement and guidance. Casting him in his first school production as Flounder and introducing him to the world of community theatre with his first role in the Secret Garden. You have introduced Harrison to what I have no doubt will be a life long passion for him. What a beautiful gift! Words are really not enough but will have to do... Thank you for inspiring him and continuing to work with him on honing his skills!

"JK Performance"

“My husband and I would really like to say ‘thank you’ to your effort in helping the JK students for the “Let it Go” performance yesterday! It was amazing… We wouldn’t have imagined they could do this on the stage! We really appreciate you providing this wonderful opportunity for my daughter and her friends! It was priceless… “
"Just a note to say thank you for your efforts with the Grade 3's yesterday in the wonderful presentations of "Macbeth" and "Twelfth Night". What a pleasure it was to see your efforts! I was not introduced to Shakespeare until Grade 9! It was so wonderful to see the confidence grow and the understanding they had of the text! It really made my day! I so appreciate your efforts in their development and all of the work that goes into making Glenburnie such a wonderful educational experience."
“Thank you so very much for posting the performance at last week’s assembly on the website. It was an amazing performance! I am a beaming mom and very grateful to Glenburnie for giving my sons such wonderful opportunities.”

“I thought that I would share something with you that happened while driving my son to school this week. We usually talk in the car but we will also sometimes listen to a radio station or music. As we drove along, I was searching for an radio station that would be appropriate for my six year old. As I passed Classical 96.3 there was a lively classical song playing. I was about to change to the next channel, thinking that my son would prefer vocals, when he said to “stop.” He immediately declared that he knew what was on the radio. I’d like to think that I can recognize some classical music, but I had no clue what I was listening to. I asked him what it was, and he said “Peter and the Wolf.” He told me that you played it for them in music class about four weeks ago. He then proceeded to narrate the story from that point in the song to the end. I must admit that I was still a little skeptical, but after the next song the announcer confirmed that we had been listening to Sergei Prokoveiv’s “Peter and the Wolf.” My son explained that he couldn’t remember the author (composer) but when he heard the name he remembered that you told them that too. I hope that my son grows up to have an appreciation for all music. As a father I have to admit to many proud parenting moments so far but this is one that I certainly won’t forget. When I told my wife, she reacted with equal amounts of excitement and pride. I would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank you” very much for teaching our son (and the other students) that lesson. Clearly you have found a way to connect with their young minds, to trigger creativity and imagination, while they listen to and learn about music.”

“We would like to thank you for the fantastic Christmas Concert yesterday. We are always so moved by the amount of work and dedication that all the teachers, staff, and parents put into these productions. This has certainly been the case each and every year that our son has been part of the Glenburnie concerts – they are second to none! Due to your decision in choosing our son for such an important role, you have provided him with greater confidence in the area of the performing arts, and for that alone, we are very appreciative. As his parents, we have been very aware of his keen interest in sports, but seeing him shine on stage last night has provided us with even greater insight into his varied capabilities. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you do, and have done, for our son.”

“‘Oh my word!’ You did it . . . again! Every year, you continue to amaze us all with your vision, commitment, positive attitude, and, most importantly, your faith in our talented students. My daughter had an absolute blast in her role in the School Play, and I know the one thing she will miss when she moves on to high school next year is the fantastic experience she had being a part of the Dramatic Production. Thank you for providing her with such a fun opportunity.”
“you continue to amaze us all with your vision, commitment, positive attitude”
“Thank you so much for the beautiful photograph of my son. You are an amazing photographer! I also want to thank you for inspiring my son so much. I have to say that I never thought my son would love art as much as he does. You are a terrific teacher and motivator.”
