I have been meaning to write to thank you for your performance at McAuley for the Presidents' College back in December. What an amazing way to wrap up our fall season! I had just expected you and your guitar and was so impressed by your kindness in bringing your full range of instruments and in getting your band involved. By all accounts, people loved it and I look forward to being able to invite you back to one of our events. Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to have you back to campus when people can really be there in person and without masks? I can see people twirling and shaking maracas already!
Best wishes to you for a good year ahead,Michele Troy

In case you missed the obvious, you and Eugenio blew us away last Saturday. The audience really related to your outstanding performance and you gave us far more than any of us were led to expect. You can be assured that we will bring you back, perhaps in the Fall, for an encore.
You and Eugenio can take just pride in your remarkable talent and your dedication to your art that has resulted in such an entertaining pair. Jean and I really enjoyed our visit with you both and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Regards,Dave & Jean Mcquillan

It was a pleasure meeting you all and we most definitely hope to invite you back in the future.Thank you again, Hannah & Meredith

Your performance not only allowed the students to hear different music from Puerto Rico and around, but also the students were able to learn a bit of history or interesting facts for each piece you played. I felt that added a wonderful connection for the students. It was a great learning experience for everyone.
We sincerely appreciate your performance at Beal. It was a great way to end a long week and to start spring vacation!
Thank you,Cindy Coughlin

I just wanted to let you know how much everyone loved your performance. One of my favorite kindergarten teachers said it was, "Intense!". I have a four year old w/ Down syndrome, she doesn't talk much, but all weekend kept saying "Dance!" and pretended to shake maracas because she was chosen as a volunteer (and stole your show for a moment I might add). My third grader's favorite part was the rainforest demo. I loved hearing about the Spanish Conquistadors. Our music teacher raved about you to another music teacher at a different school, so I toId them I would check. (Excerpt)

On behalf of Marvin School, I'd like to thank you and the other members of Surcari for putting on such a beautiful performance on Thursday night. You are all very talented, and it was truly an enriching experience to hear and see you.
My family and I have been listening to the Surcari CD since Thursday! Your music is truly beautiful. It was a pleasure to have met you, and I hope to get to see you again in the future.

Just wanted to say thanks for the assembly today - the kids LOVED it! They really enjoyed seeing the instruments and learning about them and especially the rainforest sounds you created. I will be ordering both your CD's this weekend!
