"The Ayers commission was a total knock-out.
I keep hearing from people how moved they were by the music, the drama, the pacing, and the haunting 'flash-backs'." —Christopher Wilkins, Music Director, Akron Symphony Orch.
The Ayers commission, Arise, My Soul, Arise, "absolutely captured the event! It set the tone, molding the hymns's theme into a dramatic arrangement, blessing the honoree, singers, musicians, and audience alike!" — Dr. Gary Streit, retired President, Malone University
