“I can't stress how wonderful the program is.  I have never seen faces beaming the way the children did for the whole 45 minutes.   It was super!

The Hip Pickles incorporated bullying as their Message as well as the music.   It was exciting!

I couldn’t let the day end without thanking you for the terrific performance today!

I received so many positive comments on the program from both children and teachers.  You should be commended for the high energy and entertaining experience provided to the children.

It’s a wonderful thing when you can use your talent to make a living. I wish you the best for the future and hope to have you back at our school again!
